Salma, a Palestinian widow, decides to do battle with the Israeli Minister of Defence, whose house lies alongside her lemon tree grove, on the border between Israel and the West Bank. It's not long before the police decree that Salma's trees pose a real threat to the Minister of Defence and his family, ordering that they be cut down. But Salma decides to fight to save her trees and her life.
Born in Jerusalem, he grew up in the USA, Canada and Brazil. He graduated from the National Film School in Beaconsfield, the UK, and in 1984 directed his first film, B?Yom bahir ro?im et Dameshek (On a Clear Day You Can See Damascus). His other works include: Gmar gavi?a (Cup Final, 1991), Zohar (1993), the biggest Israeli box-office hit of the 90s, Tzomet volkan (1999), Pituy (Temptation, 2002) and The Syrian Bride (2004). Lemon Tree won the Panorama Audience Award at the Berlinale 2008.
