Stitching Palestine

Documentary: Palestine (2017) | Director: Carol Mansour | Running Time: 78 mins | Arabic with English subtitles

In observance of Nakba Day.

Twelve Palestinian women sit before us and talk of their life before the Diaspora, of their memories, of their lives and of their identity. Their narratives are connected by the enduring thread of the ancient art of embroidery.

Twelve resilient, determined and articulate women from disparate walks of life: lawyers, artists, housewives, activists, architects and politicians stitch together the story of their homeland, of their dispossession, and of their unwavering determination that justice will prevail.

Through their stories, the individual weaves into the collective, yet remaining distinctly personal. Twelve women, twelve life-spans and stories from Palestine; a land whose position was fixed on the map of the world, but is now embroidered on its face.
