1:35 PM – ISRAEL-PALESTINE
1:35 PM AWARD WINNER—BEST SHORT FILM: Women in Sink, dir. Iris Zaki (37 mins)
LOCATION: Minneapolis Convention Center, Auditorium 2
In a Christian Arab hair salon in Israel, the director installs a camera over the basin, where she chats with the clients she is shampooing. She thus paints an unexpected choral portrait of this space that provides temporary freedom, where Arab and Jewish women share their differences on politics, history and love.
