Eyewitness Gaza (2011)

Eyewitness Gaza Poster
2:47 | Trailer
During 5 trips to Gaza, Schiel has gained first-hand experience of Palestinian life, assessed trauma, shared struggles, and portrays what he experienced.





The aim of this movie is to show an accurate view of current life in Gaza, with necessary historical and political context to help an audience understand the unique position Gazans are in: under siege, trapped, constantly threatened by attacks from Israel and their own political factions, with little awareness or concern by a larger world. The central theme is youth, from infancy to young adulthood. How do people survive siege while marginalized by the world community? We explore this question in the context of the Arab Spring-the uprisings beginning in Tunisia in late 2010, including events in Palestine such as the Gaza Youth Break Out movement and the most recent manifestations of violent and nonviolent transformation. One central image or story is that of the American Friends Service Committee's (AFSC) very successful youth program, Popular Achievement. Written by Anonymous
