Description Technical Specs
Three interlocking films depicting a group of Arabs and Israelis who nurture a fragile culture of coexistence over a span of twenty years. The films--Wadi: 1981, Wadi: 1991, and Wadi: 2001--are set within Wadi Rushmia, a valley in Haifa. Like House and A House in Jerusalem, these films show a microcosm of relations between Israelis and Palestinians, though here things are somewhat more hopeful. We see the pain of displaced Romanian Jews, and of Palestinians forced to live in shambles. But we also see friendships and even love affairs across the social boundaries, as all these people strive in one way or another to establish roots within a constantly changing landscape. In English, Hebrew, Arabic, Russian and other languages with English subtitles.

Amos Gitai---Israel/France---1981-2001---180 mins.
