In December of 2008 Israel launched a devastating attack on Gaza. A month of bullets, bombs, rockets white phosphorus, tanks and bulldozers killed 1400 people, mostly civilians. It left much of Gaza in ruins.
But this is not a story of misery amongst the rubble. It is the compelling and moving story of two remarkable young women, the future of Palestine, who personify the struggle to maintain humanity, humor and hope, to find some degree of normality in the brutal abnormality that has been imposed on them. Mona is an 11 yr old girl of remarkable wisdom. Her family died under Israeli rockets. Fida Qishta, the filmmaker, is a 27 year old journalist. With her crew she has documented the lives of the people of Gaza.
This is a Palestinian film, the first made by Palestinians. But it is a story that resonates across the bitter history of man's inhumanity to man: in the oil soaked poverty of the Niger Delta, in the destroyed state of Iraq, in the fierce resistance of the Warsaw Ghetto. Your support is urgently needed to distribute and show the film in communities.(Watch the Trailer Below)
