In Detail

This documentary has real value as a compassionate human document, in showing ordinary people who courageously have to keep going somehow, in the grimmest of conditions, in a world where, as someone puts it, there is a “wall between the people of Gaza and life itself”.

A young woman practises the cello, a young man records rap tracks, a theatre director rehearses a performance piece, a fisherman broods over the oppression of his industry – they are not allowed to fish more than three miles out, and the amount of fish that can be caught so close to shore is pitifully meagre.

The film wisely avoids any sermonizing or calls to action, and instead serves as an unwavering depiction of cinematic empathy.

It’s a sombre film about a people under political siege, and so much more poignant in light of events since 7 October 2023.
