The Reports on Sarah and Saleem

This is a Palestinian film that shows another side of the Israeli occupation of Palestine. Israeli Sarah and Palestinian Saleem have an affair. Both are interrogated and Saleem is imprisoned. Sarah is called a traitor. Sarah is forced to testify that Saleem recruited her to obtain information about military raids in Bethlehem and Ramallah conducted by her husband who is a colonel in the Israeli army. Palestinian Intelligence participates in the lie and makes Saleem a hero when his crime was that he had cheated on his wife.

Well worth viewing. Subtle. Very little background music sans Hollywood pressing the usual buttons.

You can view it on demand on SBS till May 2022 …
