Re: Research Query: Perceptions of Chinese people in Modern Israeli Literature

Savyon Liebrecht has a collection of short stories: "What Am I Speaking, Chinese?" He Said To Her.

Would the student consider expanding her inquiry to film?

Noodle is about an Israeli woman who helps her undocumented, deported Chinese housekeeper reunite with the son she leaves in Israel.

There seem to be a few short "documentaries," made as hasbara or news features, and I *think* the documentary, No.17, goes into communities of Chinese immigrants in Israel.

Would you share a bibliography if one is created?

Research Query: Perceptions of Chinese people in Modern Israeli Literature

Research Query: One of my students wants to work on "Perceptions of Chinese people in Modern Israeli Literature"; the student is fluent in Modern Hebrew (and Cantonese). The only mention of China/Chines seems to be in a translation of Yiddish literature into Hebrew. Is there anything  concerning this topic in Israeli literature?
