Ana Arabia

About the Film

Beautifully and masterfully shot in one 81-minute take, ANA ARABIA follows Yael, a young journalist, as she meets a family of Jews and Arabs in a forgotten shanty enclave on the “border” between Jaffa and Bat Yam in Israel. Originally sent to interview Yussuf, the Muslim widower of a Jewish woman, Yael becomes engrossed in the man’s personal stories and the endangered, fragile balance of their physical space, orchard included. Renowned filmmaker Amos Gitai captures lyrical moments of connection and revelation while depicting a sublime metaphor of coexistence.

About the Director

Amos Gitai was born in Israel to a Bauhaus architect, Munio Weinraub, and an intellectual, Efratia Gitai, a secular teacher of Biblical texts. As a young soldier sent to the theatre of war in Golan in 1973 and confronted with the growing strength of the Palestinian resistance to Israeli occupation, Amos Gitai experienced decisive moments personally. Other experiences included his training and first vocation as an architect, whose influence is ever-present in his films. Amos Gitai resides in Haifa and Paris. He is one of the most respected filmmaker on the international scene and through his work constantly explores new narrative and stylistic methods while keeping a close relationship to contemporary reality, even when his scripts take detours into the mythical past.
