RELEASE DATE: 31ST OCTOBER 2014
“It’s not about peace, it’s about justice.” ~ Gideon Levy, Award-winning veteran Israeli journalist.
This is a feature length documentary film which asks, and presents testimony on the following key questions:
- Why is Israel presented as a liberal democracy?
- Why are Palestinians portrayed as aggressors, rather than victims?
- What is it like to live under Israeli occupation and bombardment?
- What does life look like for marginalised groups within Israel?
- Where do we go from here?
I’ve been traveling to Israel, Gaza and the West Bank for twelve years. When Operation Protective Edge commenced in July 2014, readers like you crowd funded me to return and report with a perspective and depth missing in the mainstream media. I traveled to the very worst hit areas of Gaza and recorded Israel’s military assaults as they happened, capturing footage you will see nowhere else.
While producing daily written reports and live Q&A sessions from Gaza (you can see those reports here) I was also interviewing key witnesses to Israel’s brutal military occupation of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, for this film.
This is a film which puts names and faces to the statistics.
It is about a people under siege, and the indomitable determination of the human spirit to be free.
I will be touring the film from November 2014, along with Gaza resident Khalil AlTatari. But I need you to invite me to your area to show it.
Bring the film to your school, community centre, cinema or any other venue, together with live Questions and Answers with Kerry-anne and Khalil, by emailing: [email protected]
