Death in Gaza

I recently watched Death in Gaza (2003), a documentary created by James Miller and Saira Shah. The film sets out to chronicle the effect of the culture of hate on children growing up in Palestine and Israel. The film's extremely depressing in its narration of the seemingly endless cycle of hate and violence and its depiction of the stark conditions of Palestinians. Miller had planned to spend half of the film talking about the conflict's effects on Israeli children but he was shot and killed by Israeli forces before he could do so.

Yeah - I saw this movie last year and it was so heavy. You really got a sense of what it means to be under seige - that night when he gets shot is so terribly powerful.

His killing seemed so cold and impersonal. Just a loud pop in the night.
