Canadian premiere of 'The Salt of This Sea' Oct. 25 2008, Toronto Palestine Film Festival

"Cinema can do a lot in Palestine. In many ways. There are so many stories, so many things... We have been reduced to invisibility all our lives, few people know, so many things have been prohibited, our books, our voices have been silenced, in the 70s, 80s, our writers, our artists were assassinated... So there's this imposed silence that has lasted so long and is still lasting, and cinema is yet another form of expression. And each Palestinian film being shot is a miracle, in my view." - Anne-Marie Jacir, director of 'The Salt of this Sea', interview given to Alain Gresh (Nouvelles d'Orient - blog du Monde Diplomatique - May 23 2008)
