DIARIES


Directed by | May Odeh

Genre documentary  |  Length: 53mins  |  Year of production: 2010


May Odeh’s documentary enlists the perspectives of three young woman living in Gaza to bring audiences a vantage on life in the Gaza Strip rarely captured on film. Odeh shows these women facing a “double siege”: One emanating from the Israeli occupation, the other from the quasi religious authority that controls the torn city of Gaza today. Following them throughout the course of their daily life, Diaries finds these Gaza residents willing to share their fears, memories, thoughts and hopes for a better life – one wide enough to accommodate their aspirations. Filmed a year on from the devastating attacks of 20089, Odeh’s sensitive portrait is rich with detail and full of surprising insights into life in Gaza today.
