Sara 2014



This is a film about a director and a screenwriter making a drama film about “Sara”, a Palestinian girl living in one of the refugee camps of Gaza, being a victim of an “honor killing”.
In the meantime, interference of visions, conflict of perspectives and intersection between reality and fiction take place. The screenwriter is unable to write an imaginary compelling ending, probably as happy as he wished. One the other hand, the diligent director, holding the ember of truth, is keen to put an end to his film as much as helping his friend in denial inflected by the story of “Sara” which is probably more realistic than imagination could endure.
The film tells a different story about Gaza, which suffers from other things beside heroism, whose people do other things beside death and are pained for ordinary causes. They dream, love, hate, prevail, fail, make mistakes and break, like all other human beings.
The ending of the film – similar to that of simple dreams – comes shocking and unexpected, for that Gaza is a city which is not always known of making perfect endings!
