Tonight in Sydney’s Darling Harbour , I watched ‘The Reports Of Sarah & Saleem’ at the Palestinian Film Festival.

The film was an engaging human interest story about an illicit affair, exploring the cultural, personal and political ramifications. My takeaway from this film was the unwavering ferocity of the Palestinian wife, fighting patriarchy, racism and classism in a system designed to silence her voice. The messaging was clear. Such a thought provoking film that centred the complexities of human relationships that too often get subsumed in the political realm.
