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.

    Nov 11, 2002 | Rating: 2.5/4
  • It provides a grim, upsetting glimpse at the lives of some of the 1.2 million Palestinians who live in the crowded cities and refugee camps of Gaza.

    Nov 11, 2002 | Rating: 3.5/5
  • Therein lies the persisting sentiment of guilt and fiendishness in trying to adequately talk about a film that portrays rather poignantly and starkly the suffering of Palestinians
