Suha Arafat, the wife of late Palestinian President Yasser Arafat gave Spirit Level Film the first ever set of extended interviews on her husband. In her first trip to London in over 20 years, she attended the premiere of The Price of Kings: Film 1 – Yasser Arafat.
In key interviews with CNN’s Becky Anderson, Sir David Frost, BBC Arabic and The Sunday Times, Suha Arafat disclosed the emotional accounts she gave in the documentary film, The Price of Kings: Yasser Arafat, on her relationship with the PLO chief, the birth of their daughter Zahwa Arafat and her life in Gaza.
During her stay in London Suha Arafat told the Spirit Level Film team many stories about her last journey to London with Yasser Arafat including her first meeting with the then Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher. “She came to the Dorchester in a beautiful suit with a matching hat” said Suha. “She was very gracious and polite”
On her last day in London, the team were delighted to receive a visit from the lady herself – here is the picture of Suha Arafat with the whole Spirit Level Film team.
