Doda Diya

When the filmmaker’s elderly Tunisian-Jewish aunt fulfills her dream of returning to the Isle of Djerba, he follows her with a camera. Doda Dia immediately feels right at home. She takes great pleasure in simple tasks, like bargaining with shopkeepers at the colorful outdoor market, and in an all-important challenge: finding the perfect Tunisian bride for her beloved Israeli nephew.
