Abstract

This article deals with the representation of Middle Eastern Jews and Palestinians in the Israeli cinema of the 1970s and 1980s, specifically the phenomenon of "passing," whereby ethnicity and race are interchangeable in casting and plot. Such passing can empower Middle Eastern Jews to deconstruct ethnic stereotypes, while excluding Palestinians from participating in public discourse.
