Description

As we premiere Dead of Jaffa, the latest film from veteran Israeli director Ram Loevy, TJFF offers you the chance to see his groundbreaking 1966 short film. Directed by Avshalom Katz and produced by Ram Loevy, this influential and moving film was the first time Israeli cinema centred on the plight of an Arab protagonist. The filmmakers follow an Arab manual labourer who heads to Tel Aviv for work, and reflect on his struggles and alienation in the city. A poetic and vital document from pre-1967 Israel.
