A portrait of a people attempting to lead meaningful lives against the rubble of perennial conflict and going beyond the reach of television news reports to reveal a world rich with eloquent and resilient characters. GAZA depicts a people plagued by conflict but not defined by it and as we journey through the physically broken and battered landscape, we let our cast of characters speak for themselves. Through them we gain a nuanced understanding of what life is really like for its citizens and by extension, grow and foster a rare familiarity and affinity with this truly unique place, as we build towards a tender portrait of a beleaguered humanity. Gaza is wholly cinematic in intent and delivery, with its breathtaking cinematography, orchestral score and masterful editing.
Winner of Best Documentary at the Dublin International Film Festival and Official Nominee for the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance Film Festival.
