||Director: Gina Angelone,
||Synopsis: There is a centuries-old seawall in the ancient port of Akka, located on Israel's northern coast. Today, Akka is a modern city inhabited by Muslims, Christians, Jews, and Baha'i, but its history goes all the way back to rule of the Egyptian Pharaohs. Young people dare to stand atop the 40' one-meter thick block structure and risk their fate by jumping into the roiling sea. This perilous tradition has continued for many generations, and has become a rite of passage for the children of Akka. "It's Better to Jump" is about the ancient walled city of Akka as it undergoes harsh economic pressures and vast social change. The film focuses on the aspirations and concerns of the Palestinian inhabitants who call the Old City home. Written by Anonymous

All citizens in Israel, Muslim, Christian and Jew, have the right to
protest, complain and fight for their civil rights. For some reason you
seem to believe that Akka, or Acre in English, is still a part of
mandate Palestinian but it has been an Israeli city since the
Independence War of 1948. It is not situated in the Palestinian
terrorities on the West Bank or Gaza and your comments vis-a-vis
"Jewish settlers" are beyond ridiculous. In Israel Jews and Muslims can
live wherever they like and the Jews living in Acre are not settlers!
We are a democracy, unlike the countries surrounding us. The city's
town council has Muslim and Jewish representatives and to present the
city as being "Palestinian" is simply ignorant. They are all Israeli
citizens and enjoy the rights that our country offers. These include
the right to protest change which may alter their way of life. The Arab
citizens in Acre enjoy the same benefits and rights as the Jewish
citizens in Acre but they both face changes and development in an
ancient city. Does anyone imagine that Acre should remain a city
without sewage facilities or without basic services?
Acre is a multi-racial city of Israeli Muslims and Israeli Jews who
live together in harmony. Yes, there is development but having visited
that city many times, I know that building on historic sites is
strictly regulated. The Crusader Castle etc. is now a UNESCO World
Heritage Site and this preservation is for the benefit of all the
citizens of Acre. The city now boasts beautiful hotels owned by Israeli
Muslims who benefit from the flow of visits to the World Heritage Site.
I have no problem with the film presenting the problems faced by the
citizens of an ancient city which HAS to progress in order to survive.
I'm sure that the Israeli Muslim residents of the city have justified
arguments and have the right to fight to protect change which affects
their way of life. This happens all over Israel and Jews as well as
Muslims have to face up to the authorities' plans for change. It is
even happening in my local area which is mostly Jewish. We are fighting
building plans, have hired legal aid etc. and hope to stop the planned
change. This is called democracy and exists in all democratic countries
and to present the situation as being "the Jews destroying the
Palestinian way of life" in the "Palestinian city of Akka" is pure BDS
It is important that documentaries present problems faced by
communities and I have no doubt that the Israeli Arabs resident in the
Israeli city of Acre have real problems with development. It is
important that documentary filmmakers examine and present the rights of
all citizens in every country. Readers may not know that almost 22% of
Israel's population is non-Jewish, i.e. Muslims, Druze, Circassian,
Christian etc. and considering the tensions and difficulties, problems
are resolved in a relatively civil way. They enjoy equal rights in our
society including the RIGHT to protest, unlike the situation in the
neighbouring Arab countries.
