We All Live in Gaza Online Series:
Journey with us back to inside the siege


OVERVIEW

We All Live in Gaza as an independent media project, has as our goal to bring you inside the siege.  And as you will witness, Gaza is everything you would expect.  But at the same time  Gaza is nothing like you would expect.

Over the past five years the project has met artists, farmers, doctors, policy makers, activists, all residents of the territory.  And over the next 12 months we will be videotaping, editing and posting in real-time a continuing series of stories both inside and outside the territory, all to bring you as complete a picture as possible.

Because the Israeli Erez crossing into Gaza is closed to independent journalists.  And because access to Gaza through the Egyptian Rafah crossing is shut, it is now almost impossible for independent media to enter Gaza.  As such we will be working with our partners inside to continue production. 

And parallel to the work inside, we will continue to explore outside the reasons why the siege continues unabated. 
  
It has now been four years since the devastating 2014 Israeli military operation that left thousands dead and injured and over 100,000 without a permanent home.  We will continue our quest to re-enter in order to document how those we met over the years have survived the past bombardment, to document conditions under which they are living today, and what they hope for the future.

In the documentary series you’ll meet North Gaza farmer Mohammed Obied and his family; Ayman Mghamis, a founding member of Gaza’s first hip hop crew; Fatma Quota, a single mother raising her teenage daughter; artist  Basel Maqusi; Zabar Zaneen, a leader in Gaza’s non-violent resistance movement, and many others including members of the government and resistance militias.  All to give you a rounded picture of the conflict from inside looking out.

Reflections on Auschwitz.  ​​
We begin exploring how the past is connected to today.  What can we learn from the horrific reality of Nazi Germany.  What can history teach us. 

Peace Be Upon Us.  Paris.  Here foreign ministers and diplomats from 73 countries met on January 15th, 2017 to sort our ways to help restart the broken Israeli/Palestinian negotiations to end the conflict.  Did anything happen?
