About the Event
On February 19, join This is Not an Ulpan, the Willy Brandt Center, and First Hand Films for a screening of Jaffa - A Guide to Gentrification by Keren Shayo & Lavi Vanounou.
Gentrification is a form of economic violence that has swept through Tel Aviv and had devastating impacts on longtime residents of Yaffa, particularly Palestinian-Arab residents. Addressed through an intersectional lens, this film follows the personal struggle of the long-time residents against the threat of eviction orders and reveals the metamorphosis that the city is going through, uncovering both its social and deeply political meanings.
We will to be joined by Aviv Tatarsky from Ir Amim, for a discussion on the Jerusalem context following the film. The mission of Ir Amim is to render Jerusalem a more equitable and sustainable city for the Israelis and Palestinians who share it and to help secure a negotiated resolution on the city through sustained monitoring, reporting, public and legal advocacy, public education and outreach to re-orient the public discourse on Jerusalem.
This screening has been made possible by First Hand Films, an award-winning international sales company, producer, and distributor based in Zurich, Switzerland.
