Dimona Twist

.
Michal Aviad / 2016

Seven women arrive in Israel by ship in the 1950s and 1960s and are sent straight to Dimona, a town recently established in the desert. They now open up and share their life stories that have never before been told from their perspectives. What happened during the first fifteen years to the girls and women who arrived with their families from North Africa and Poland and found themselves building a town in the middle of the desert? They talk about the pain of leaving their homes behind, about poverty and the difficulties of adjusting in their new homeland, and about their determined attempts to create rich and meaningful lives.

Press

  • The recounting of their experience and struggles is infused with a resilient joy
    JWA
  • Dimona Twist is truly a unique esthetic experience. An alternative feminist pillar of fire.
    HaOketz
  • Captures the tragedy, fear, and, ultimately, the hope that allowed them to create the lives they desired.
    Kol Habira
  • The tribulations of absorption, difficulties of immigration, economic challenge and tension between immigrants from Ashkenazi and Mizrahi cultures are just part of the conflicts with which these women had to cope.
    Haaretz
