‘Salt of this Sea’ (2008, Dir: Annemarie Jacir) tells the story of Soraya, who leaves America to recover her grandfather’s savings that were frozen when he was exiled in 1948. She fulfills 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 is Palestine's 2008 Oscar Entry for Best Foreign Language Film.
