The Boston Palestine Film Festival returns with a global lineup of compelling films offering independent views of Palestine’s history, culture, and geographically dispersed society. This year’s festival opens with The Reports on Sarah and Saleem, a thriller about a Jewish woman and Palestinian man involved in an extra-marital affair that spirals into political espionage; and don’t miss The Man Who Stole Bansky, a documentary about the bodybuilder/cab driver who extracted a piece of cement wall adorned with a mural by Bansky and attempted to sell it at auction.
