10th Annual Houston Jewish Film Festival: Dancing in Jaffa


In this documentary, Pierre Dulaine, a well-known ballroom dancer originally from Jaffa, returns home to establish dancing classes in several Jaffa schools, specifically pairing Jewish and Palestinian children. This inspiring documentary follows several children as they slowly overcome their fears: First, of dancing with a member of the opposite sex (a difficult proposition in any culture at the awkward age of 11), and later, of dancing with someone who comes from a very different background.

Pierre transform their lives, confirming his beliefs that dance can overcome hatred and provide the first steps towards real change.
