Soraida is a Palestinian woman living in Ramallah, in the occupied territories. In this city under siege and a strict curfew, she fights her own battle: despite the military occupation, violence and oppression, she is determined not to lose her humanity.
This how a documentary should not be made. It's rambling and repetitive. Mind you, there are, interspersed, an occasional tidbit of useful information, but just setting up a camera in someone's kitchen or while they are hanging out clothes and letting them talk is hardly a worthwhile venture. Also the camera itself is intrusive and I was wondering how this was provoking a kind of acting out or a performance. The makers of this documentary obviously just planted a camera and let it roll freeform. No pointed questions, no direction and no background whatsoever. There was overuse of the words "them", "they"... Who exactly are "They" – the Israeli government, the Israeli army, Israeli civilian, Hamas, the Palestinian police?
There is doubtless much to be said about the state of Palestinians, but this isn't the film. Did anyone think to edit this?
