Salt of this Sea
Salt of This Sea

A Palestinian American woman travels to her homeland to retrieve her grandfather’s savings, which had been frozen since his exile during the Nakba. Sixty years after her grandparents’ exile from Jaffe, Soraya (Suheir Hammad) leaves Brooklyn to live in her homeland. An urgent and devastating portrait of life under occupation, it exudes the claustrophobia of living in Palestine on many levels: physically, spiritually, emotionally.
