Before You is the Sea

A young Jewish woman and a young Arab man are in love.

Film notes

Tale of a young Jewish woman and a young Arab man in love... but also an allegory of the Middle East peace process, when the Camp David summit abruptly broke off, effectively sealing the fate of the Oslo negotiations.

Working on two levels, the film captures the wrought Israeli-Palestinian relationship, and a love fought with the burden of political adversity. A Hisham Zreiq film, rich with symbolism, subtle hints… nothing more to add, nothing left to take away.
