Editorial Reviews

"The ancient city of Akka, along the northern coast of Israel, is the home to a melting pot of Muslims, Christians, Jews, and Baha i. For centuries, its surrounding forty-foot sea wall has protected its citizens and repelled invaders. As the Old City endures harsh economic pressures and vast social changes, Palestinian families who have lived here for generations are being pressured to leave. Despite the daily challenges they face, the city s youth sons and daughters of fishermen, school teachers, and artists continue a perilous inter-generational rite of passage expressing individuality and the right to control their destiny: jumping from the high wall into the tempestuous sea below. IT S BETTER TO JUMP captures the spirit of Akka s Arab residents and the leap of faith they make towards self-determination and a better future. "

Format: DVD
This film is a fascinating combination of great footage (and even greater editing!) of cliff divers and interviews about the historical and current situation in the ancient city of Akka (Acre) in present-day Israel. The story is told by myriad citizens of the town who have watched Israelis try to buy property in order to turn the town into a high-end international tourist trap, all the while ignoring the rich Palestinian heritage of the town. The story is riveting and shocking. The people are courageous and bold. The cliff divers are insane! Watch this film!!

Compelling, poignant film about displacement, and what it’s like to have your home taken away even while you’re still living in it. The politics are complex and will probably provoke some viewers, particularly Zionists, but this story presents a point of view that’s not often heard and reminds us that underneath all the politics are average human beings just trying to live with dignity in the present and find hope for the future. Well told, well made, and with a beautiful soundtrack. Very worth watching.

Very well done. The film does a masterful job of taking the viewer deep into a culture that we normally only see through bits and scraps on CNN.
