Benefit screening of ‘Gaza’
In aid of Medical Aid for Palestinians
Little Theatre CinemaMENU
This highly acclaimed 90-minute documentary from 2019 has been described as ‘a beautiful portrait of everyday Gazan citizens, leading meaningful lives beyond the rubble of perennial conflict’. Rotten Tomatoes gives it a 96% approval rating – its critics consensus reads: ‘Uniquely revelatory and altogether enlightening, Gaza allows audiences to settle into the unique rhythms of ordinary life in a region roiled by conflict.’
The directors, Andrew McConnell and Garry Keane, note: ‘How do you tell the story of such a place? Through a cast of major and minor characters, we meet Palestinians from all walks of life, who individually have a strong story to tell but who together create a portrait of Gaza like no other. The siege, brought on by history, Israel, Hamas and the abandonment of the international community, is the villain of our story. This is Gaza as you have never seen it before.’
If you have already seen the film, come and see it again! The evening will be both a celebration of the people of Gaza and an elegy for all they have lost.
All proceeds after costs go to Medical Aid for Palestinians (MAP).
In partnership with Bristol Palestine Film Festival.
