When asked a question on politics, late Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish once answered: “I write about love to expose the conditions that don’t allow me to write about love.” In Two Travellers to a River, Palestinian actress Manal Khader recites such a poem by Darwish: a concise reflection on how things could have been.
