Soraida, a Woman of Palestine

Tahani Rached, Canada, Egypt 2004, 119 Min., OV with English subs

In the era of the second Palestinian Intifada (2000-2005), Canadian-Egyptian filmmaker Tahani Rached decided to delve into the realities of living under curfews and recurring military infiltrations from the perspectives of women in Ramallah. Soraida is one of them. The film provides intimate insights into her everyday life, as she grapples with fears and hardships, armed with the power of resilience and enduring hope for a better future for her family and her people. Rached's diligent narrative allows space for untold stories about being a woman under occupation and the underrepresented realms of resistance this entails. (ALFILM)
