YACOUB
$29.95
Nine and a half year-old Yacoub lives in the Christian Quarter of the Old City. He studies French at the Frères LaSalle School and helps out at his uncle’s falafel shop located in the heart of the old city. When Yacoub and his brother play walkie-talkie on the roof o their house, pretending to be on the lookout for Israeli soldiers, their childish game takes on a chilling resonance. Deeply religious, Yacoub takes us to the church of the Holy Sepulchre where he likes to pray, particularly for the welfare of his family as well as for a lasting peace.
CHILDREN OF JERUSALEM (SET OF 7)
$180.00
This fascinating series of seven half hour documentaries, produced by the National Film Board of Canada, focuses on the daily lives, hopes, dreams and fears of Israeli and Arab children who live in and around the holy city of Jerusalem. Aged 9 through 13, each child has his/her unique life. Although they all live in close geographic proximity to one another, their lifestyles are light years apart. The children narrate the films themselves, which makes the series all the more compelling. Directed by Academy Award-winning director Beverly Shaffer.
