From TV sets thousands of miles away, Gaza has been reduced to an image of violence, chaos and destruction. It’s hard to imagine anybody living a normal life there – but what do the local people do when they’re not under siege?
This elegantly shot documentary on Palestinian life offers a rare chance to be immersed in the heart of Gaza, to glimpse behind the walls of this misunderstood land and get to know the real people who inhabit it- a taxi driver, a teacher, a student, a barber. Through them we gain a nuanced understanding of what life is really like in Gaza, painting a portrait of a people plagued by conflict, but not defined by it.
