Narrated by Helena Bonham Carter
The on-going price paid by Palestinians is easier to measure than that of their first President, Yasser Arafat. Six decades of Arafat's leadership continues to divide and polarise opinion, though there can be little dispute of its impact on the Middle East. Film One in The Price of Kings documentary series reveals the sacrifices made by Yasser Arafat, one of the most controversial leaders of the 20th Century.
Speaking with the people who knew Arafat best, from his confidantes within the Palestinian Authority and his extended family, to his adversaries such as Israeli President, Shimon Peres, the film attempts to forge an account of Arafat’s political life up until his mysterious death in 2004. This groundbreaking documentary film also features an exclusive interview with Yasser Arafat’s widow, Suha Arafat, who talks for the first time about what her life was like being married to a revolutionary giving a particularly personal insight into the price that Yasser Arafat paid for the Palestinian cause.
