"Religion tore the city apart, can dance bring it together?"
- 1 hr 30 min
Dancing in Jaffa is a documentary film about the child of a Palestinian mother and an Irish father who is a Jaffa native. Born in the mid 1940s just south of Tel Aviv, he remembers his family being forced out just when he was a child, to create Israel. He believes that dancing can change old prejudices between the Palestinians and Israeli Jews into peace, and give confidence to teens. He has not returned to his childhood city until this film was being made, and although he is still sad about their differences, he still wants the two sides to get along.
