By late 2003, Yasser Arafat, the iconic Palestinian leader, had been effectively imprisoned in his Ramallah compound for almost a year. To Sherine Salama, an Australian journalist, this represented a challenge and she set herself the task of making a definitive documentary about the Palestinian leader - but it would not prove easy. It took her over a year of filming in and around Yasser Arafat's compound before she finally managed to persuade Arafat's aides to arrange an interview. It would be the last interview Arafat ever gave. A month later he was dead. The Last Days of Yasser Arafat tells the final chapter in the story of one of the most controversial public figures of recent times.
