Event Description
DOVE'S CRY

Dir. Ganit Ilouz (52min, Israel, 2013)
In Hebrew and Arabic with English Subtitles
Documentary
DC Premiere

Hadeel is a young charismatic teacher from Wadi Ara who teaches Arabic in a Jewish primary school. We follow this brilliant, intrepid woman for a year, at her school and home. The daily interaction she has with pupils and staff opens a cross-cultural dialogue, challenging divisive stereotypes and building a connection between Muslims and Jews. This is juxtaposed against her daily struggles with being an Arab citizen of Israel and being a single Muslim woman in her late twenties. Equal parts inspiring and heartbreaking, Hadeel’s story offers an unflinching glimpse of Israel in all of its beautiful– and at times excruciating–complexity.

Part of the 4th Annual Community Education Day On Israeli Arab Issues
