How do you foster understanding between Jewish and Palestinian youth raised to distrust one another? Dancer Pierre Dulaine, born in Jaffa to Irish and Palestinian parents, proposed a solution: ballroom dance! This look at five schools in Dulaine’s hometown participating in his “Dancing Classrooms” program, focuses on Dulaine, his program’s participants, and a teacher at one of Jaffa’s rare “mixed” schools, and the build-up to a competition that demands teamwork between the 11- and 12-year-old Jewish and Palestinian dancers.

About the film:
Hiam Abbass | 2012 | 88 minutes
Narrative | NYC PREMIERE
The chaos of bombs falling is nothing compared to what happens when one Palestinian family gathers for a wedding in Galilee. Daughter Hajar has come home with an Anglo-Saxon, Christian boyfriend, when patriarch Abu Majd drops into a coma, a clamor to sort out his legacy ensues, and, as long-hidden secrets are revealed, the family reunion increasingly resembles its own battlefield.
