Partner with the Enemy

"As funny as it is suspenseful and moving, the film tells a complex story suffused with vibrant color and strong characters."
MidnightEast
"Unpredictable and innovative... a seemingly impossible friendship in which business, femininity and family are all entangled, all of which occurs against a backdrop of suspicion that is only natural when each side has long been defined by the other as the enemy."

“Peace in the Middle East would come about more easily if the region were governed by women." Roger Ebert

I was drawn to Anat and Rola’s story because it is such a rare one, and because these two women – who are open and funny, who refuse to allow themselves to be defined by the conflict’s many stereotypes – serve as an allegory for many women in the region. The film ultimately begs a simple yet provocative question: can women succeed where men have failed for decades and bridge the political, national and religious differences that divide us?

The film attempts to portray a topic that has been over-politicized and even abused, using humor and personal narrative to demonstrate the absurdity of the political situation in Israel and Palestine.
