Director Annemarie Jacir: Israelis, Palestinians Would Have Found Solution if Americans Weren't Involved

Palestinian director Annemarie Jacir stopped by the Variety Studio at the Dubai International Film Festival to discuss cinema in Palestine and why President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital might be a good thing.

“The good thing about this Trump declaration is that at least it’s out in the open now because it’s something that as Palestinians we’ve always known,” she said. “The U.S. has never been unbiased. It’s really out in the open now, but nothing has really changed in some ways.”

Dubai Film Festival is a premier sponsor and Empire is a supporting sponsor of the Variety Studio.
