Partner with the Enemy

This soulful documentary beautifully captures the human cost of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. Kibbutznik Anat Shelach and Ramallah resident Rola Srouji meet through their work for competing logistics companies. Fueled by Rola’s enthusiasm, the women decide to join forces and start a business called Unlimited Logistics Company (ULL), specializing in releasing and transporting Palestinian cargo shipped to Israeli ports. Partner with the Enemy rides on Anat and Rola’s charm -- you root for their success, even as their hostile environments threaten to shatter their dreams. The film is full of quietly moving scenes: Rola’s sons marveling at the Edenic lushness and freedom of Kibbutz Mizra, Anat’s speech at the company’s one-year anniversary in which she tells the women’s Arab clients.
