for detaching yourself.”

The feature documentary will be completed in the summer of 2018.   The arts installation launched in July of 2017, at the OXO Design Center, London to commemorate the anniversary of the 2014 bombardment of the territory.  Plans are unfolding to bring the installation to Washington, DC, New York, Brussels and other world capitols.  

Our project's mission is twofold:

To chronicle conditions on the ground as seen through the eyes of policy makers, fellow journalists, academics, and critically from Gazans themselves living under siege.

To share what we have seen and heard with you, our audience using all available media.

Why ?

   
 
The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest
and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown”          

 H.P. Lovecraft
 
Often it seems safer to embrace what we believe to be true, than to let go of it for fear of the unknown.  For many the words “Palestinian” and “terrorist” are synonymous, a product of media stereotyping that is often self-perpetuating. 

In the aftermath of the 2014 Palestinian/Israeli conflict with its massive bombardment of Gaza, our project is chronicling the region’s
political and social rebuilding through the eyes of the people of Gaza.

As journalists, documentary media makers and concerned humans it is important for us to document and share what is happening now on the ground in the territory.    

In parallel, it is critically important to understand why conditions exist as they do.  What are the historical and political underpinnings?  Why the massive level of destruction and civilian casualties?   Why is so little aid entering Gaza?  What effect is this slow pace of reconstruction having on the population?

Over the coming months and years we will seek out those both inside and outside the territory who can offer scenarios for resolving this serious political, physical and emotional crisis.
