Born in Gaza
Filmed during the 2014 siege of Gaza, which left 507 children dead and 3,598 wounded, Born in Gaza follows a group of young children growing up in a war zone."The situation is really complicated. We have a war every two years", states 13 year old Mohamed. "I often think about our situation and I never see the end."
It's estimated that 400,000 children in Gaza are in desperate need of psychological help. And the violence seems self-perpetuating.
Born in Gaza was released theatrically in Spain in December 2014 in over 30 cinemas and nominated for the 2015 Goyas.
