Jaffa Mangoes uncovers the story of the Barakeh family’s ancestral home in Jaffa, near which Michal grew-up. It is a story of a house that brought two artists from conflicting histories, to work together in an attempt to achieve a dialogue. In a collaborative effort, the two artists focus on revealing the history of this house in relation to its current status through an amalgam of intertwined visuals made from real and imagined footages.
