Stitching Palestine

Twelve Palestinian women talk of their life before the Diaspora; of their memories, of their lives and of their identity. Their narratives are connected by the enduring thread of the ancient art of embroidery. Twelve resilient, determined and articulate women from disparate walks of life stitch together the story of their homeland, of their dispossession, and of their unwavering determination that justice will prevail.
