Ana Hurra (I am free) is a play that depicts one of the interrogation sessions in Israeli jails. The play, written and directed by Palestinian artist Valantina Abu Oqsa, is based on testimonies and stories by political female prisoners who stood heroically in defiance against their interrogators. Abu Oqsa creates a theatre experience that is derived from the Palestinian reality through studies and in-depth research that lasted almost one year and culminated in interviews with several former Palestinian male and female political prisoners, documenting the experiences to the tiniest detail, delving into the unknown and revealing facts, constituting a precedent in the Palestinian theater and for the Palestinian prisoners in general.
