Remains of the Sheikh

Aharon, my father, was born and raised in Sheikh Munis – an Arab village on the northern side of the Yarkon River.

Since the inauguration of the university campus in Ramat Aviv, there is an annexation of the village lands in favor of the expansion of university, as a result of which, the village residents were forced to leave. Nevertheless, Sheikh Munis still exists in the consciousness of the people who used to live there – both Arab and Jewish.

By reconstructing some of my father's childhood memories, I sought to create a documentation of Sheikh Munis as realistic and at the same time imaginary images, comprised of descriptions of human memory.

My aim was to commemorate a bygone reality, a place that had existed. And a man.
