The opening scene of Samira Saraya’s short film “Polygraph” takes place in bed. Two women – one a Palestinian Arab, the other a Jewish Israeli – are having passionate sex when a warning siren suddenly interrupts their intimacy. For a second they freeze, but then the Arab woman looks straight at her partner, turns her on her back and takes the controlling position on top. The siren keeps blaring, but the women ignore it and carry on as before.
