Al Dhakira al Khasba (Fertile Memory)
Michel Khleifi 1980 docudrama
The first full length film to be shot within the disputed Palestinian West
Bank "Green Line," FERTILE MEMORY is the feature debut of Michel Khleifi,
acclaimed director of the Cannes Film Festival triumph, WEDDING IN GALILEE.
Lyrically blending both documentary and narrative elements, Khleifi
skillfully and lovingly crafts a portrait of two Palestinian women whose
individual struggles both define and transcend the politics that have torn
apart their homes and their lives.
