"The media tries to complicate it with ethnic problems. But it's simple. It's a question of land and equality."
- Salt of This Sea director, Anne Marie Jacir
Dear Friends of Palestine,
For anyone who missed the Q & A last week, there will be a Q & A with Tony Award winning Suheir Hammad, lead actor in Salt of This Sea, tonight after the 7:30 screening of will at the Quad Cinema in NYC (13th Street between 5th and 6th Avenues).
Thanks again for everyone's overwhelming support for this important film! Please write Kino-Lorber, the film's distributor, and thank them for supporting films from Palestine! www.kinolorber.com. Broader theatrical release in USA is pending box office sales.
Did you know permits for filming this movie were denied by Israeli government, so many scenes were shot "on the fly"?
