    Crazy for avocados!

    We thank you for getting involved in the project and send you a virtual hug. We will email you one of our favorite simple avocado recipes from Chile!
    We are crazy for avocados at Dar Jacir. The avocado is not native to Palestine but was imported here by Palestinians who were living between Palestine and Chile back in the early 1900's. Now they are a staple in the Palestinian diet!

    Downloadable link to "When I Saw You"

    "When I Saw You" by Annemarie. This feature film starring Saleh Bakri was Palestine’s 2013 Oscar Entry for Best Foreign Language Film.

    Jordan, 1967. The world is alive with change: brimming with reawakened energy, new styles, music and an infectious sense of hope. In Jordan, a different kind of change is underway as tens of thousands of refugees pour across the border from Palestine. Having been separated from his father in the chaos of war, Tarek, 11, and his mother Ghaydaa, are amongst this latest wave of refugees. Placed in “temporary” refugee camps made up of tents and prefab houses until they would be able to return, they wait, like the generation before them who arrived in 1948. With difficulties adjusting to life in Harir camp and a longing to be reunited with his father, Tarek searches a way out, and discovers a new hope emerging with the times.

    Arsenale from Emily's "stazione"!

Situated on each of the 24 vaporetti stops along route #1 of the water bus route, beginning at the Lido stop and ending at Piazzale Roma, Emily translated the names of each station into Arabicto then place the Arabic translations on all the stops next to their Italian counterparts, thereby creating a bilingual transportation route through the city. The Arabic inscriptions were meant to place each floating platform in direct dialogue with the surrounding architecture and urban design, linking them with various elements of Venice's shared heritage with the Arab world.
