Soraida, a Woman of Palestine

Soraida, a Woman of Palestine

| 1 h 59 min

This feature-length film introduces viewers to Soraida, a Palestinian woman who lives in Ramallah. In her neighbourhood the women do not all wear veils, the men do not rattle off empty political slogans, the young people do not strap bombs to their belts, and the children play together like kids everywhere. Taking us into the daily existence of Soraida, her family and neighbours, the film compels us to ask fundamental questions about life in the Middle East.

    This was really a very good documentry.......I suggest that the palestinian politicians reorganize their struggle and prioritize the palestinian womens rights and equality with the Israeli counterparts.....maybe the world will listen better with bigger ears
