Q&A with Annemarie Jacir

 
Salt of This Sea

With Suheir Hammad, Saleh Bakri, Riyad Ideis
2008, 109min

 

The first feature film made by a Palestinian female director, Salt of This Sea is an impassioned account of one woman’s quest for liberation in a land of borders, checkpoints, and restrictions. Brooklyn-born Palestinian-American Soraya travels to her ancestral home of Jaffa determined to reconnect with her roots and reclaim the land and money seized from her grandfather in 1948—even if that means taking the law into her own hands.

 
Like Twenty Impossibles

2003, 17min

 

Jacir’s faux-documentary is an incisive commentary on the struggles of the artist working in the midst of military occupation.
