Cleveland Jewish FilmFest - Dimona TwistDate: September 11, 2017Time: 1:00 pm
Director: Michal Aviad • Israel • 2016 • Hebrew with English subtitles • 70 min
The distinct and honest voices of seven women who immigrated to Israel in the 1950s and ’60s from North Africa, intertwined with vivid historical footage, are the heart of this compelling film. In their adopted community of Dimona, the women experience isolation and find a painful hierarchy among Asheknazim and Sephardim as they try to befriend other immigrants and adapt to their new home.
Presented in partnership with the Jewish Federation of Cleveland’s Community Relations Committee.
