Palestinian Justice Film Series: Salt of this Sea

Samantha Sikder ’14 writes in with the next installment of the Palestinian Justice Film Series:

The Palestinian Justice Film Series continues this week with Salt of this Sea. Join us a for a viewing, snacks and discussion.
“Annemarie Jacir’s politically charged feature debut is the story of Soraya (Suheir Hammad), a Brooklyn-born woman who travels to Palestine to retrieve her grandfather’s savings, frozen in a Jaffa bank account after his 1948 exile. Struggling to feel at home in the land of her ancestors — and rebuffed by the country’s financial institutions — she meets Emad, a young Palestinian whose ambition, contrary to hers, is to leave forever. Tired of the constraints that dictate their lives, they devise a plan to reclaim what is theirs — whatever the consequences may be.”
