Dancing In Jaffa Review

Image for Dancing In Jaffa

Documentary with veteran Ballroom dancer Pierre Dulaine bringing together 11 yr olds from diverse backgrounds in Jaffa to learn to dance and understand each other's cultures.

★★★★★

Despite skirting the deep-lying issues, this unofficial sequel to Mad Hot Ballroom (2005) follows exiled veteran Pierre Dulaine’s efforts to persuade Israeli and Palestinian tweenagers that political, religious and cultural differences disappear while dancing.

Exasperatingly trite, but also rather sweet.
