The Reports on Sarah & Saleem
(MA15+) PALESTINE 127 mins, with subtitles

Dir: Muayad Alayan (2018)
Cast: Maisa Abd Elhadi, Mohammad Eid, Kamel El Basha
Sarah is Israeli and runs a café in West Jerusalem. Saleem is a Palestinian deliveryman from East Jerusalem. Despite both being married and coming from opposing sides of a deeply divided region, they are locked in a passionate and dangerous affair.
When a risky late-night trip to the West Bank goes awry and threatens to expose them, they quickly become the subject of a minor international crisis, caught up in the machinations of two warring states.
Desperate to keep their secret and protect their families, Sarah and Saleem find themselves trapped in a web of deceit, espionage and collusion that not even the truth looks able to stop.
This gripping, accomplished thriller set across the Israeli-Palestinian border refuses to take sides, instead illustrating how in Jerusalem, even sex can be made political.
