coexistence, My ass!

COEXISTENCE, MY ASS! is a groundbreaking feature documentary that follows comedian Noam Shuster as she lives, writes and performs her potent one-woman show dished out in a mouthwatering blend of English, Hebrew and Arabic (and sometimes Farsi!).


Noam's political satire catapults her to viral popularity and uniquely positions her as a fresh voice in a stale Middle East. But while a global pandemic rages, regional conflicts fester, and dinner-table debates flare, Noam tries to do the unthinkable by using humor to fight for justice and equality for everyone, even at the expense of her personal safety.


A cinéma vérité tragicomedy that will make people laugh, cry and rethink their own power, privilege and precarious place in the world — one joke at a time.

Short Film

Reckoning with Laughter is a short film that we produced originally for Al Jazeera for their flagship documentary program Witness. It has been nominated for the SIMA global impact awards and a Foreign Press Association Media Award. The film is currently featured on The New Yorker online. 


Noam's Videos

Producers for a primetime current-events show offer Noam a guest spot on Israeli public television where she writes and performs satirical skits and opinion pieces in both Hebrew and Arabic. Many of her pieces have gone viral across the Middle East. Noam is doing what no one has done before: uniting Israelis and Arabs around their respective anti-government sentiments.
