Film 1 - Yasser Arafat
|We’re delighted to introduce The Price of Kings: Film 1 - Yasser Arafat on DVD - the first film in our new documentary series The Price of Kings.|
Yasser Arafat’s political legacy is one marred by controversy. To some, he was a heroic revolutionary who fought for the freedom of Palestine and the rights of his people; to others he was a terrorist and leader of a corrupt state. Yet regardless of the dichotomy, Yasser Arafat’s position at the heart of the Middle East conflict for over forty years makes him a character of incredible significance.
With groundbreaking access to the people who knew Yasser Arafat best; his wife, Suha Arafat, his political allies and his adversaries, the film delves into Yasser Arafat’s history, the personal struggles he faced and sacrifices he made seeking to establish peace with Israel, whilst at the same time trying to build a Palestinian nation for his people.
