  • Port of Memory

    2009. Palestine/Germany/ France/United Arab Emirates. Written and directed by Kamal Aljafari. Aljafari follows his own family’s story after they receive an official order to evacuate their home in Ajami, a seafront neighborhood of once-wealthy homes and villas in Jaffa. The family is thrown into disarray, and, lacking the means to fight back, a mute despair cloaks their lives. Radically poetic, blending mundane gestures of everyday life with evocations of collective memory, Port of Memory travels freely between the subjective and the objective. In Arabic, Hebrew; English subtitles. 63 min.
