A world of words
Close together and facing the same way.
Pierre Dulaine, the well-known ballroom dancer, returns to Jaffa, his birthplace, with the idea of fulfilling his lifelong dream: teaching Jewish and Palestinian Isareli chlidren to dance together.
For generations, Jaffa has been a city divided with the two communities living side-by-side but growing increasingly apart.
The film Dancing in Jaffa explores the stories of four children forced to confront issues of identity, segregation and racism, as they dance with their enemies. We watch Pierre transform hundreds of lives over the course of four months with the belief that this will forever change the future and bridge the gap between the Jewish and Palestinian people.
