More than an excellent documentary, a cry for freedom
16 October 2004 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Not only is this film a great example of verite documentary film-making, but it has the courage to take a moral stand and point of view in this extremely controversial conflict. At a time when almost all mainstream media has chosen to forget that the Israelis are militarily occupying the Palestinian Territories, "Gaza Strip" steps forward and pulls out all the stops to show the reality that gets left out of major news reporting.

Following a free-form thread of characters and events, the films starts out through the eyes of a 13-year-old paper boy in Gaza. He resurfaces throughout the film and provides a base of narration that carries us through the entire length of the Gaza Strip, from Gaza City to Raffa and Khan Yunis. The scenes in this film are each powerful on their own, but together they are a bleak testimony of the horror of occupation, and a cry for freedom.
