'War is hell for everyone, especially for kids. That's been the message of countless documentaries over the decades, and 'Still Alive in Gaza' is the latest addition to the roster. A glimpse into the plight of those trying to get by in what director Nicolas Wadimoff has called 'the world's largest prison,' it's a professionally executed work of obvious interest for documentary festivals and those specializing in humanitarian matters.'Written by
Disaster struck the Gaza Strip in December 2008 as Israel began a wave of air strikes damaging and destroying tens of thousands of homes, ruining many families and leaving behind nothing but fear and pessimism. Capturing the post-war devastation and human suffering, Swiss filmmaker Nicolas Wadimoff takes us into lives of survivors, brilliantly portraying the strange hope that exists amidst the ruins, grief and despair. From beautiful landscapes now reduced to rubble, to buzzing zoos and waterscapes now filled with remnants, to kids with lost dreams and aspirations, Wadimoff has portrayed every aspect of life with a message that hope exists despite all devastation.
