Directed by | Azza Shaaban

Genre documentary  |  Length: 27mins  |  Year of production: 2009

With Of Flesh and Blood, first time documentary director Azza Shaaban provides a thoughtful Egyptian perspective on the siege in Gaza, taking us on a short but intense journey through the Gaza Strip. Filmed over 5 days, during a brief and unofficial opening of the border between Egypt and Gaza, Shaaban's exploration was conducted without a crew or shooting schedule. Operating alone with only a small digital camera, the director enters Gaza to encounter those living under siege and returns bearing this testimony to their determination to bring dignity to their day to day lives.
