My Fantasia

Directed by: Duki Dror
55 Minutes, 2001

My Fantasia is director Duki Dror’s own family story. The three Darwish brothers, who emigrated from Iraq to Israel in the 50’s, established the family factory “Fantasia” – a menorah factory. For a time period of 50 years they designed, manufactured and shipped Chanukah menorahs for the entire world and now…the family factory is about to close down. Duki, who is the son of the youngest brother, is starting to embark on a journey that unravels the history of his family, going back 100 years. The story weaves memories from Iraq and Israel – two homelands, two languages, two identities, two enemies.
