"NossBalad.com is the first Palestinian professional web-series ever produced in Jerusalem. What does it mean to be a Jerusalemite? Challenges and problems, love and joy. What if we go beyond all the cultural and political stereotypes and we focus on human beings? What would we see? Daily life, relationships, unexpected…humanity. Representing the daily absurdity using humour makes people smile but at the same time it delivers a picture of the reality in a new, effective, and interesting way. The challenging goal is to bring all the stereotypes about Jerusalem and Palestinians into question using humour and at the same time providing some simple information about actual life in Jerusalem. The idea of producing a series for the web is based on how easy it is for Palestinian youth to use new technologies. Internet is an integral part of our daily life and allows for communication over distances. The same technologies that we use everyday can become a means of artistic production. By using contemporary technology, production costs decrease while also by guaranteeing a very high quality of the output."
