Seeing women as drivers of change, this award-winning short documentary highlights aspects of Palestinian life in a way that presents its subjects not as victims, but as proactive, engaged, and dignified. The documentary takes its title from the Palestinian concept ‘sumud’ (literally translated as ‘steadfastness’), which speaks to the Palestinians’ steadfast commitment to their homeland, and their determination to vindicate their rights.
Organised by the 8×8 Festival.
