Film Screening: "Women in Sink" & "Almost Friends"
Join the UK Task Force for the screening of two films about Arab citizens of Israel at the Seret Film Festival at JW3.
Women in Sink: This is a story of a Christian Arab hair salon in Israel and of coexistence between Arab and Jewish women. The film shows 10 portraits of women in the hair-washing sink, speaking openly with curious Iris, about politics, life and love.
Almost Friends: Two girls meet online. Samar, 12, has an Arab Israeli mother and a Palestinian father from the West Bank. She lives in Lod, a mixed city marred by poverty and crime. Linor, 11, was born in Gush Katif in the Gaza Strip but now lives in Tlamim, a religious settlement in the Lachish region. As participants in a programme combining education and technology, their relationship starts from online correspondence.
