Salt of This Sea (dir. Annemarie Jacir)

As part of the opening of ‘This Sea is Mine’ at Darat al Funun on 5 October 2016, we will show Salt of This Sea (2008) by Annemarie Jacir, in the presence of the filmmaker. Salt of This Sea tells the story of Soraya, who leaves America to recover her grandfather’s savings that were frozen when he was exiled in 1948. She fulfills her life-long dream of ‘returning’ to Palestine, but slowly discovers the reality around her through her friendship with Emad, a Palestinian whose ambition is to leave forever.
