Mirror Image: Screening and Discussion with Dannielle Schwartz

Hosted By: Orange County Community Scholar Program (CSP)

Jewish Israeli grandparents are challenged by their grandchild to compose an agreed-upon version of the untold story of a large mirror, taken from an Arab village after the 1948 war. An intimate discussion that reflects on how history is written, contested and negotiated.

With its accented aesthetic and what can be seen as a surprising choice of topic, Mirror Image teaches us that these counter-spaces can also be occupied by “accented filmmakers” who were born and raised in Israel. It is indeed a “minor film”; but if there is one thing we can learn from Mirror Image, it is that the marginal often deserves a more central place (Neta Alexander, Media Fields Journal).
