Tel Aviv-Jaffa

n celebration of the 100 years since Tel Aviv's establishment, this two-part film depicts the remarkable, moving and humorous story of the largest and most important city in Israel, the secular and youthful alternative to Jerusalem. Supported by in-depth research and rare archival materials, the film accompanies Tel Aviv from its inception, as an unpretentious neighborhood on the outskirts of Ottoman Jaffa, to the establishment of the State of Israel in the municipal museum of the big city that sprouted from that same little neighborhood. The film also documents the fate of Jaffa, the city that gave birth to Tel Aviv and was subsequently engulfed by it. It portrays the plethora of national conflicts, the political tensions and the cultural contradictions that made Tel Aviv-Jaffa a unique, vibrant city, an international metropolis.
