Storyline

In 2003, documentarian James Miller began filming Palestinian children but was killed by an Israeli soldier before he could finish the project. Assembled from footage shot before his death, this film follows three children in the Gaza Strip city of Rafah. Twelve-year-old friends Ahmed and Mohammed, many of whose friends have been killed by Israeli forces, dream about martyrdom, while 16-year-old Najla has also lost many of her relatives. All three talk about their lives and hatred of Israel. Written by Jwelch5742

Heartbreaking
22 August 2004 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

I am an American of Palestinian descent, and this film broke my heart. Unfortunately, the filmmaker only got to tell one side of the story before he died. The way some of the Palestinian adults (note not ALL of them -- for example, one boy's mother is shown begging him to stop his martyr talk) radicalize their children is shocking and upsetting. However, had Miller lived, he probably would have show some Israeli adults doing the same.

No matter which side you're on, this is a very sad and thought-provoking documentary. Anyone who's interested in the conflict in the Middle East should definitely watch it and see the level of desperation that the people there have reached.
