Partner with the Enemy

Poster for Partner with the Enemy In the midst of the ever-fraught Israeli-Palestinian political landscape, two women, one Israeli and one Palestinian, attempt the seemingly impossible: to build a business together. Fighting against societal and family pressure, anti-normalization currents and a chauvinistic, male-dominated industry, the two combine forces to create a logistics company which helps Palestinian businessmen to navigate the everyday absurdities of Israeli control of the West Bank. But while they help their clients to overcome the obstacles of Israeli occupation, the divisions between them threaten to tear their partnership apart. Can the bond between them overcome the impossible?

    When Israeli and Palestinian Women Beat the Odds in Business

    “I doubt it. Men have too much ego,” says Anat, one of the two women featured in the film “Partner with the Enemy,” when asked if her business model could ever work between two men. “Partner with the Enemy,” a documentary that screened last week as part of the Other Israel Film Festival, portrays the lives of Anat Shelach, a kibbutznikit Israeli and Rola Srouji, an urbanite from Ramallah, as they create and manage a logistics company together.
