The Screen Guide

In September 2003, Palestinian-Australian filmmaker Sherine Salama travelled to the besieged compound of Yasser Arafat. She had a hunch that his days were numbered. After a long, frustrating and often comical struggle, she finally succeeded in interviewing Arafat in October 2004. In an extraordinary twist of fate, Arafat died the following month. THE LAST DAYS OF YASSER ARAFAT tells the final chapter in the story of one of the most controversial public figures of our time. (Also available in a 56 min version.)
