FILM: Jaffa at our July Meeting

Bookmark and Share

Due to popular demand, we’ll be screening Eyal Sivan’s film “Jaffa, the orange’s clockwork”:

… narrates the visual history of the famous citrus fruit originated from Palestine and known worldwide for centuries as “Jaffa oranges”.

The history of the orange is the history of this land. Through photography and cinema, poetry, paintings, workers of the citruses’ industry and historians, memory and present mythologies, Palestinians and Israelis cross and combine. The close reading of the Jaffa brand’s visual representation is a reflection on western orientalist phantasms surrounding the ‘holy land’ and the ‘State of Israel’ and a tool to reveal the untold story of what was once a commune industry and symbol to Arabs and Jews in Palestine.

When? 8pm Thursday 15th July 2012

Where? Room 3, RISC, London Street, Reading , RG1 4PS (above the Global Cafe)
