Two extremely simple yet utterly profound films, exploring the history of a house in East Jerusalem as a microcosm for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. In the first film, House (1980), a Euro-Israeli Professor has purchased the house from an aging Algerian-Israeli couple. An Israeli contractor rehabs the house with Palestinian laborers. Meanwhile, the filmmakers seek out the house's pre-1948 owner. Produced and then censored by Israeli television, House was saved from the dustbin of history by its director, Amos Gitai (Kadosh, Kippur). Almost twenty years later, Gitai returns to the house, revisits the families of the pre-1948 owner, and explores some of the same issues in A House in Jerusalem (1997). In English, Hebrew and Arabic, with English subtitles.
