Dimona Twist

SERET London - the Israeli Film & TV Festival

Cinema

Directed by Michal Aviad | 2016 | Israel | Hebrew with English subtitles | 70mins

Solange, Sonia, Ilana, Alice, Huguette, Esther and Hana. Seven women arrive in Israel by ship in the 1950s and 1960s and are sent straight to Dimona.

They now share their life stories, never told before, intertwined with images from private and public archives, from their own candid perspectives.

What happened in the first fifteen years to the girls and women who arrived with their families from North Africa and Poland and found themselves building a town in the middle of the desert? They talk about the pain of leaving their homes behind, about poverty and the difficulties of adjusting in their new homeland, and about their determined attempts to create rich and meaningful lives with humour, sorrow and dignity.
