Women in Sink

Israel, 2015, 36 Minutes

Hebrew with English subtitles

Directed by Iris Zaki

In a hair salon owned by a Christian Arab in Haifa, the director installs a camera over the washbasin where she chats with the diverse clients she is shampooing. The film captures unexpected frankness of Arab and Jewish women who share their differences and a community of views on politics, history and love.

Partner with the Enemy

Israel 2014, 60 minutes

Arabic and Hebrew with English subtitles

Directed by Duki Dror and Chen Shelach

In the midst of the ever-fraught Israeli-Palestinian political landscape, two women, one Israeli and one Palestinian, attempt the seemingly impossible: to build a business together. Fighting against societal and family pressure, anti-normalization currents and a chauvinistic, male-dominated industry, the two combine forces to create a logistics company which helps Palestinian businessmen navigate the everyday life in the West Bank.
