PORT OF MEMORY

 

Port of Memory follows the family of the filmmaker after they receive an order to evacuate their home in Ajami, Jaffa's once-prosperous sea-front neighbourhood. Their lives and those of other residents are thrown into disarray as they lack the means to fight back.

Radically poetic, Port of Memory is a reflection on the absurdity of being at once absent and present as a Palestinian living within Israel today. But Aljafaris (The Roof) new film is far more than a documentary. Fashioned out of an intoxicating blend of expressionistic, verité, and reflective genre styles, this is a statement of iconoclastic creative intent from one of the most exciting voices to emerge in Palestinian cinema for a generation. 

Beautifully shot and densely layered, Port of Memory brings the first week of the 2010 Palestine Film Festival to a close and is screened here for the first time in the UK.
