Movie Info

A woman finds herself torn by her feelings for two different men in this drama from the Palestinian Territories. Kamar (Yasmine Elmasri) is an talented dancer who has fallen in love with Zaid (Ashraf Farah), who (like her) is a Christian of Palestinian heritage. Kamar and Zaid are wed, but their honeymoon is short lived when he's arrested by Israeli forces for refusing to give up land in the occupied territories. As Zaid is sent to prison, Kamar gets a job teaching folk dancing while doing what she can to be supportive for her husband. As much as she loves Zaid, Kamar has a hard time dealing with her loneliness, and when Kais (Ali Sliman), a handsome dancer, begins working at the dance studio after a sojourn in Lebanon, she can't help but notice his good looks and charm. Kais is clearly attracted to Kamar, and she has to choose between her loyalty to a man behind bars and someone who can give her the love she needs. The first feature film from writer and director Najwa Najjar, Pomegranates and Myrrh received its American premiere at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival.
