2005 Baytowne Film Festival
20 November 2005 | by (Niceville, Flordia) – See all my reviews

The documentary Gaza Strip is about the conflict in the Israeli-occupied Gaza Strip and the ordinary lives of the Palestinians who live there. In particular, we see a lot of Mohammed Hejazi, a young boy who risks getting shot every day to throw rocks at Israeli tanks. This documentary was filmed with no tripods, lights, or external microphones on location over the course of 100 days. As an objective account of its subject, Gaza Strip fails. Historians will be dissatisfied, and those desiring a complete, objective account of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict either in Gaza Strip or at large will raise the expected objections (we see nothing from the Israeli's point of view). But the film does succeed at giving us an idea of everyday life in that cramped, narrow strip of land in the Middle East, and showing how solving our conflicts through violence begets more violence and can probably only at best serve as a temporary means.
