Dancing in Jaffa: A Film and Discussion
Can the pairing of young Israeli and Palestinian children as dance partners create opportunities for a more peaceful future? And what is the potency today of cultural diplomacy? Enjoy a preview of the upcoming film Dancing in Jaffa prior to its official release. Post-screening, ballroom legend Pierre Dulaine and film producer Diane Nabatoff discuss this documented return to Dulaine’s hometown of Jaffa, Israel, to extend the reach of his global Dancing Classrooms project, previously celebrated in the award-winning film Mad Hot Ballroom. A presentation of "New Views: Documentaries and Dialogue." Co-presented by the Aspen Institute and AspenFILM, and made possible by generous donations from Leonard Lauder and Jane and Michael Eisner.
Festival: 2013
