As part of the opening of Qalandiya International: This Sea is Mine, we are showing Salt of this Sea (2008) in the presence of the director Annemarie Jacir.

Salt of this Sea tells the story of Soraya, who leaves America to recover her grandfather’s savings that were frozen when he was exiled in 1948. She fulfils her life-long dream of “returning” to Palestine, but slowly discovers the reality around her through her friendship with Emad, a Palestinian whose ambition is to leave forever. Salt of this Sea was Palestine's 2008 Oscar Entry for Best Foreign Language Film.
