Vibeke Lokkeberg: Tears of Gaza (Must Watch) – English Subtitles
An extraordinary, internationally acclaimed documentary about impact of the 2008 Gaza bombings on civilians and children, by filmmaker Vibeke Løkkeberg. After watching news reports from her home in Norway, Løkkeberg attempted to gain access to Gaza to report on events there, but discovered first-hand that international journalists were barred from entering the area. The denial of access further impelled her to report on the story, and she proceeded to gather raw footage from Palestinian cameramen and eye-witnesses living in Gaza who recorded bombings on smart phones. The result is an indelible cinematic experience and historical document that has been selected to screen at prestigious international film festivals including Toronto, Jerusalem, Abu Dhabi, Doha Tribeca, Transylvania, Melbourne, IDFA and Filmfest DC.
