Great Sadness of Zohara
This semi-autobiographical experimental short concerns a woman's search for her Middle Eastern roots. Directed by feminist filmmaker Nina Menkes, Great Sadness follows its heroine from Jerusalem through the desolate Arab landscape; when she returns to her Jewish Orthodox community in Jerusalem, however, she is ostracized. ~ Michael Hastings, Rovi
