Jaffa, The Orange’s Clockwork
Dir. Eyal Sivan | 2009 l 88′
This film is a political essay excavating the entwined visual and political histories of that famous citrus fruit originating in Palestine and known worldwide as the “Jaffa Orange”. While this orange has been translated into a symbol of the Zionist enterprise and even the state of Israel, for Palestinians it remains a powerful symbol of the loss and destruction of their homeland.
By exploring the visual history of this brand, the film reflects on western fantasies related to the ‘Orient’ and ‘Holy Land’. Visually captivating and politically bold, Sivan weaves a tapestry of archival material and interviews, ultimately asking what the Jaffa Orange’s past might offer for the future in Palestine/Israel.
This film will be available from 3pm on Wednesday 27th May and the link will expire at midnight on Friday 12th June.
