MES Film Series presents: Lemon Tree
60 Eggers Hall
Lemon Tree The latest feature by Israeli director Eran Riklis presents us with the story of Salma, a Palestinian widow who lives in a small village on the green line border between Israel and the West Bank. Salma is pushed to defend her lemon tree grove when a new Israeli Defense Minister moves next to her and threatens to have her trees torn down for security reasons. Personal drama gives way to political controversies as Salma forms an unexpected bond with the minister's lonely wife and takes her protest--with the help of her young lawyer -- all the way to the Israeli Supreme Court.
