The Dove Flyer
June 14, 7:00 pm
Drama, 2014. 108 mins.
Director: Nissim Dayan
Based on the book by Eli Amir
Kabi and his family face an uncertain future as do all Jews living in Baghdad. It’s 1950 and each member of Kabi’s circle has a different dream: his mother wants to return to the Muslim quarter where she felt safer; his father wants to emigrate to Israel; Salim, his headmaster, wants Arabs and Jews to be equal, and Abu just wants to care for his adored doves. The Dove Flyer recalls a lost and treasured time, when almost 130,000 Jews lived in Iraq, using the almost-extinct language Judeo-Arabic.
