Leila Khaled Hijacker

Taking a break from the madness for 62 minutes last night meant watching Leila Khaled- Hijacker

Palestinian- Swedish filmmaker Lina Makboul shoots Leila's legacy and contemporary life in Jordan, including herself as a woman who used to idolize Leila in her childhood but had mixed feelings about her in her adult life.
The film is a short and sweet 62 minutes but needs to be seen. Unfortunately the film is only available on Region 2 DVD which means if you're in the US it can probably only be viewed on your computer. Buy the film on the website.
