To Jaffa by Ayman Sikseck
An Arab student takes the bus from Jaffa to Jerusalem. Is he hoping for a terror attack? Does he fear it? Could he himself be the terrorist? In this bitter, gentle parody by Ayman Sikseck, the everyday materials of Israeli reality turn into a cliché scribbled in the notepad of a bored young man seeking excitement. Sikseck cleverly and sensitively toys with the distance between actual existence in Israel as an Arab Israeli and the representation of that reality, which has been eroded by a surplus of imagery and turned into a form of currency.
