Movie Info

A brief, two-week excursion to the Gaza Strip turns into an extended study of the Palestinian Intifada and the damaging effects of the Israeli occupation in this feature-length documentary from American filmmaker James Longley. Filmed over the course of three months and culled from over seventy-five hours of footage, Longley attempts to give a human face to the longstanding conflict by offering an intimate look into the daily lives of average Palestinians.
