Indeed, we human beings are more territorial than err... dogs. Who'd have thought a grove of lemon trees would pose a threat to a Defense Minister?

Asia Lifeline To Gaza is screening the film 'Lemon Tree' on 9th November as part of the Palestinian Film Festival commencing on 7th November at Lamakaan.

The 3-day film festival will showcase documentaries and feature films on the root causes of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and the current situation in the region. These films from international directors aim to throw light on diasporic society, culture and political travails of Palestine.

Lemon Tree is the story of Salma Zidane, a widow who lives off her grove of lemon trees in West Bank's occupied territory. The Israeli defense minister and his wife move next door, and the secret service orders the trees to be removed for security.

Salma seeks assistance from the Palestinian authority and the Israeli army, in vain. She then gets help from a young attorney, Ziad Daud, who takes up the case.

While the courts deliberate, the Israelis fence her trees and prohibit her from entering the grove. As the story progresses, a bond develops between Salma and the minister's wife.

The film has been directed by Eran Riklis, and Hiam Abbass plays the part of Salma Zidane.

Riklis won a 'Panorama Audience Award' in the Berlin Film Festival for this film, and Hiam Abbass won the 'Best Actress' award at the Asia Pacific Screen Awards.

The screening is free for everyone. Please contact 98482-99980 for further details.
