WHERE SHOULD THE BIRDS FLY
Where Should The Birds Fly is the first film about Gaza made by Palestinians living the reality of Israel’s siege and blockade of this tiny enclave. It is the story of two young women, Mona Samouni and Fida Qishta, survivors of Israel’s Operation Cast Lead, who show strength, humor, and hope despite the destruction surrounding them.
