In Port of Memory, Aljafari offers a subtle portrait of the city of Jaffa. In a powerful language the film captures the rituals of the city, the mundane presence of its people and their struggles against the threats of eviction and the spectres of disappearance. In doing so, Port of Memory lingers nostalgically on the remnants of a lost past as a mode of resisting the dispossession of its Palestinian inhabitants and the processes of gentrification and neo-liberalization.
