Syngué Sabour, pierre de patience = The patience stone by Atiq Rahimi( Visual )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in Persian and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adapted from the best-selling novel by Atiq Rahimi. It tells a story of a young woman watching over her older husband, in a country torn apart by war. A bullet in the neck has reduced him to a comatose state. One day, the woman's vigil changes. She begins to speak truth to her silent husband, telling him about her suffering, her dreams and her secrets. After years of living under his control, with no voice of her own, she says things she could never have spoken before. Her husband has unconsciously become syngué sabour (The Patience Stone)- a magical black stone that, according to Persian mythology, absorbs the plight of those who confide in it. The woman's confessions are extraordinary and without restraint. But after weeks of looking after her husband, she begins to act, discovering herself in a relationship she starts with a young soldier
The time that remains : chronicle of a present absentee( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in Arabic and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This film concerns the relationship between Arabs and Jews in the Holy Land, as experienced by one middle-class Arab Christian family in Nazareth from the Arab-Israeli war of 1948 through the present. It is life played as a deadpan farce, one in which all parties repeat the same gestures to the point of meaninglessness. Suleiman looks through the conflict to human reality, and finds in the story of his own family's disintegration the universal pathos and tragedy of the parent-child relationship. And the tragedy that the gorgeous days and clear nights will be the same in this beautiful country no matter who lives and who dies, or whichever tribe is in control

Alezmen alebaqey = The time that remains( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in Spanish and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A humorous, heartbreaking film that explores life among the Israeli Arab community, shot largely in homes and places in which Elia Suleiman's family once lived. Inspired by his father's diaries, letters his mother sent to family members who had fled the Israeli occupation, and the director's own recollections, the film recounts the saga of the filmmaker's family in subtly hilarious vignettes
