Hani Zu'rob, one of Palestine's most prominent emerging visual artists, has been stuck in Paris for more than a year. Originally travelling to France for a rarely permitted three month stay, Hani has been unable to return to his wife and homeland due to Israel's severance of diplomatic ties with the Palestinian Authority after the democratic election of the Hamas Government. Hani is joined in Paris by another deeply respected Palestinian artist, Kamal Boullatta, who shares his own story of an exile that began in 1967. Meet Me Out of the Siege unravels the stories of both men, and observes as these two resilient and patient artists reflect on the origins of creativity, the pressures of everyday life under occupation, and the geometric language of exile.

Winner, Best Short Documentary, Moving Pictures Magazine 2007
