Aisheen / Still Alive in Gaza

DA_Selection_2010_1

Directed by Nicolas Wadimoff. Switzerland, France 2009, 86 min.

A situation report from the Gaza Strip in February 2009, just one month after the end of Israelʼs military offensive. Destruction everywhere. The bombs did not even spare the theme park. The ghost train is out of order. But hasnʼt Gaza it-self become a ghost town? Yes and no. Amid ruins, grief and despair, there are people who refuse to give up. Calmly and unspec-tacularly, without analysis or agitation, this film shows what it means to rebuild oneʼs life and common existence in a destroyed region that is cut off by an ongoing blockade.

Selected by VISIONS DU REEL Nyon.
