An urgent and devastating portrait of life in Palestine, Salt of This Sea is essential viewing. Sixty years after her grandparents exile from Jaffa, Soraya (Suheir Hammad) leaves Brooklyn to live in her homeland. Discovering that her familys bank account was frozen after the Arab- Israeli way, she decides to leave Brooklyn for her homeland, determined to reclaim her birthright, through whatever means necessary. With the help of her disillusioned lover Emad (Saleh Bakri) and his filmmaker pal Marwan (Riyad Ideis), they plan on one big heist to settle the historical debt. Driving through the countryside like an Arab (and pacifist) Bonnie and Clyde, Soraya and Emad discover their roots while rejecting their status as exiles. Hammad and Bakri attack their roles with feral intensity, electrifying the screen. The first fiction feature of Palestinian-American director Annemarie Jacir, and the first feature film from Palestine by a female director, it is an intimate, urgent and rousing piece of political filmmaking. An engrossing look at a haunted landscape. -The New York Times Brilliant, emotional. Intense and Fresh. One of the best films I ve seen in years. -Michael Moore, Director - Bowling For Columbine
A hitman for the Sicilian Mafia, Salvo is solitary, cold and ruthless. When he sneaks into a house on an assignment, he discovers Rita, an innocent young blind girl who must stand by powerlessly while her brother is assassinated. What follows is an intense exchange fueled by adrenaline and fear between the killer and his witness, one that changes their two lives in an instant. The darkness is lifted from her eyes just as Salvo decides, against his murderous instincts, to spare her life. From then on, both haunted by their brief encounter, these two damaged souls will attempt to navigate their dangerous next steps side by side.

A story of fathers and sons, East and West, progression and conservation, Wajib intelligently explores the tensions within an Arab family living in contemporary Israel. Politics is always there, of course, but through a peculiar road trip – one confined to the labyrinthine streets of Nazareth, the city with the highest Arab population in Israel – we observe a fraught personal relationship simmer and boil. Abu Shadi (Mohammed Bakri) needs to deliver his daughter’s wedding invitations, as is custom. He solicits the help of his son Shadi (Saleh Bakri – yes, the paternal relationship is not just for show), who has temporarily returned from Rome where he is an aspiring architect. Sporting a bun and a pink shirt, Shadi invokes light mockery from his father. Still smoking after a recent heart attack, Abu Shadi receives light disdain from his son. Their respective barbs cloak deeper ill feeling, a sense of incompatibility. We learn that the mother ran off with another man to America. Shadi is still in contact and shows clear affinity to her sense of adventure and self-respect. He abhors his father’s toadying to Israelis for a teaching promotion, seeing superiority in his own flight to more open-minded climes. ) Alternatively, his sister Amal (Maria Zreik) sees the virtue of her father’s constant support. The possibility of the mother’s return for the wedding, which hinges on the health of her new husband, hangs over the endless deliveries and preparations. Jacir’s achievement is that these characters do not descend into caricature. Abu Shadi’s conservatism and respect for tradition is balanced by a pragmatic, refreshing approach to others. Shadi, conversely, is hot-headed and frustratingly obstinate. His politics of progressive nationalism have no pliability, no thoughtfulness. Yet, he is the character with whom we most sympathise, his ideas about architecture and aesthetics delivered pompously but nevertheless with intellectual ballast. The film wishes to show the reconciliation of distinct beliefs – these men love each other, know each other – and so we conclude on something crucial: the pleasure of giving respect.
