Tourist Tip #384 Palestinian Nakba Reaches Tel Aviv Big Screen in Debut Film Festival

The Tel Aviv Cinematheque hosts the first-ever film festival dedicated to the formative event in Palestinian history - and its aftermath.

Tel Aviv today is a celebrated metropolis, but Palestinians who were displaced from the area during Israel's founding in 1948 may tell a different story. That formative historical time, known to Palestinians as the Nakba, or their "catastrophe," is the subject of a film festival this week at the Tel Aviv Cinematheque.
