The first full length film to be shot within the disputed Palestinian West Bank "Green Line," FERTILE MEMORY is the feature debut of Michel Khleifi, acclaimed director of the Cannes Film Festival triumph, WEDDING IN GALILEE. Lyrically blending both documentary and narrative elements, Khleifi skillfully and lovingly crafts a portrait of two Palestinian women whose individual struggles both define and transcend the politics that have torn apart their homes and their lives.

Moving and historically fascinating film
19 November 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is a really excellent and sensitively directed documentary. The characters are all quite compelling and while some of the scenarios appear staged and the historical introduction is thin there is enough spontaneity to get past the flaws.

The strength of the filmmaking is in the time the filmmaker takes with his characters and the degree to which you are able to get to know them. The photography is beautiful and really important from an archival perspective. You can really get a sense of the transition from Arab peasant life to working class life in northern Israel and the Territories.

The film provides some really intimate insights into the struggles of women in a society that is emerging into modernity under the pressures of occupation.
