AlJazeera: Jaffa – The Orange’s Clockwork

 18 October 2012 (AlJazeera TV): Witness traces Jaffa’s journey from Palestinian place name to Israeli brand name and finds an erased history of unity.

This film shows how Jaffa started out as a Palestinian place name before becoming an Israeli brand name and how the orange harvest shifted from being a joint undertaking into a symbol used by both parties in the conflict. Archive film and photographs show how propaganda was used to erase the memory of a thriving place where Arabs and Jews worked together. Art historians and political analysts talk about the images which are projected onto their walls, and elderly orange growers remember the time before their world was destroyed.

Please note that this film will only be available to watch online until November 14. Click here to watch the 46 minute video on AlJazeera >>>
