Ancient Winds – Moroccan Chronicle

A new angle on the inner conflicts that plagued the Moroccan Jews in Israel throughout their efforts to assimilate, “Ancient Winds – Moroccan Chronicle” explores the historical identity of Moroccan Jews with an emphasis on questions of belonging, denial and animosity. Told through six fascinating characters from the second generation of immigrants, they tell the dramatic and poignant story of their assimilation into Israeli society, one filled with repression and racism, including memories of their time in immigrant camps, settling the borders and the establishment of development towns, the dissension, the uprising at Wadi Salib, the Black Panther demonstrations, the establishment of the Shas political party and finally Ehud Barak’s apology.
