Out of Gaza

The documentary reflects the situation of Gaza in difficult times after the war in January 2009, seen through the eyes of a young Palestinian.

Like many young Palestinians, Nidal Abu Arif left Gaza to live in exile more than 10 years ago. Since then, he did not have the chance to go back but after the Gaza War ended, Nidal decided to return and experience the conditions of post-war Gaza.

Several factors motivated Nidal to go back. The most important were the images he saw on TV screens. The propaganda and counter-propaganda of both Israeli and Arab TV stations made him question all second-hand information and decide to experience Gaza first-hand himself.

The documentary in four parts examines post-war Gaza seen through the eyes of Nidal on a journey to the largest existing open-air prison.
