Censored by Israeli television, director Amos Gitai's controversial documentary tells the story of a West Jerusalem house with a most fascinating history. Originally the dwelling of a Palestinian doctor, the home was abandoned when the Arab-Israeli War broke out in 1948. Subsequently declared "vacant" by the Israeli government, the home was rented to Jewish-Algerian immigrants in 1956. Flash forward, and a university professor purchases the home with the intention of transforming it into a patrician villa. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
House in Jerusalem
Two decades after highlighting the growing pains of Israel in his 1978 documentary The House, director Amos Gitai reveals how each successive resident of the longstanding residence serves as a metaphor for the conditions in the young nation. By exploring the surrounding neighborhood, Gitai underscores the volatile conditions experienced by the Israelis who chose to settle in this part of Jerusalem while casting a light on the suffering experienced by the expropriated Palestinian family that contends with the pain of seeing something that was once theirs, and knowing that they'll never have it again. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
