‘I wanted to make a film that would convey not only the hard facts of life inside the Gaza Strip, but also the emotions, sensations and driving desires of the people I filmed. I made the film to fill a gap in our knowledge and a blind spot in our thinking about this conflict, but more than anything this film is an attempt to record the humanity of the people I met there, the thing that is impossible to tell in words.'
(Director – James Longley)

“Beautiful, heartbreaking, raw and revealing” – Daily Star (Beirut)

“In the best verite tradition, there are moments in Gaza Strip that disclose a wrenching human reality deeper and more basic than any politics” – New York Times
