Port of Memory (62 minutes, 2009) & The Roof  (54 minutes, 2006):   
In Port of Memory,  Aljafari uses his family and their home as a  means to study the own of Jaffa,  once a thriving port city now part of Tel Aviv, and what happened to its original inhabitants. Through this narrative we see a portrait of what was once a bustling neighborhood, nearly emptied by fighting during the establishment of the state of Israel, now an image of official neglect. 
 
The Roof presents a portrait of Aljafari’s family in Ramleh and Jaffa, “guided by a nimble camera moving calmly but ceaselessly around the rooms of homes inhabited, damaged and ruined. The title refers to the roof missing from the house where Aljafari’s family resettled in 1948, a home unfinished, an incomplete construction project."
