Dir.: Marianna Bar | Israel 2020 | A Private Death tells of the great love story between Haya Schreiber, a sixth-generation Jaffa-born Jew and Tewfic Hanania, a Christian Orthodox Jerusalem-born Arab that began in 1930s Jerusalem. Tewfic Hanania was a wealthy man who came from Jerusalem’s Arab aristocracy. Haya was a kindergarten teacher from an orthodox Jewish family. Making use of rare archival footage alongside excerpts from films made by Hanania during the 1930s and interviews with historians and family members, the film portrays life in Jerusalem during the British Mandate. The wealth of materials and this intimate story show how history can ultimately impact a private story and private death. (57 min., Heb., Eng. subt.)
