The first time I saw anything by Jackie Salloum, I was in Madrid. The Reina Sofia had an exhibition of new film directors and Jackie's work was featured. Her work is so poignant, it blew my fucking mind.

She's also made a full-length movie called Slingshot Hip Hop. In terms of a movie it may not be the best but it gives us a glimpse into what life is like in the Palestinian territories. It's a real eye opener and most definitely worth watching.

Jackie Salloum running shit.
