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 including Rola’s sons marveling at the Edenic lushness and freedom of Kibbutz Mizra; and Anat’s speech at the company’s one-year anniversary, in which she tells the women’s Arab clients, "This is what peace looks like.”
We’re exposed to Atar Shorer’s meticulous recruitment of Yinon, and a new direction in Haim and Iris’s investigation leads them to “Operation Judas”, which brings them to confront Ze’ev on the subject.
