Sumud (Everyday Resistance)
Directed by: Emmet Sheerin / Bryan Gerard Duffy
Year & Country: 2015, Ireland
Duration: 12 min
Synopsis: The documentary offers a brief insight into the realities of life in the West Bank, highlighted through the experiences of two women and their communities. It is a story about everyday resistance, and the struggle to withstand displacement in the face of Israeli policies, which are slowly and deliberately suffocating Palestinian communities. The effort of these women and their communities to live normal lives, despite their circumstances, gives truth to the famous Palestinian concept of Sumud – ‘to exist is to resist’. If we relate, we connect; if we connect, we feel. Only then do we begin to resist ourselves. Sumud!
