Dancing in Jaffa

1h 26m Hilla Medalia Israel, USA 2013

For generations, Jaffa has been a city divided by two communities that continue to grow increasingly apart. Over a ten-week period, Pierre teaches Jewish and Palestinian Israeli children to dance together and compete together. The film explores the complex stories of three children, all of whom who are forced to confront issues of identity, segregation and racial prejudice, as they dance with their enemy. We watch Pierre transform their lives confirming his belief that dance can bridge hatred and provide the first steps towards real change.
