ARABIC FILM by Eyal Sagui Bizawe & Sara Tsifroni
Directors: Eyal Sagui Bizawe & Sara Tsifroni
Back in the day, when there were only a few television channels to choose from and when Israel and Egypt were at war, families across Israel would gather in their homes on Friday nights to watch old Arab-language classics. How did Israeli television obtain these films? Why were they shown? This unexpected documentary brings us the stars, the stories, and takes us directly into living rooms brimming with nostalgia.
