Disturbing, powerful and emotionally devastating, TEARS OF GAZA is less a conventional documentary than a record–presented with minimal gloss – of the 2008 to 2009 bombing of Gaza by the Israeli military. Photographed by several Palestinian cameramen both during and after the offensive, this powerful film by director Vibeke Løkkeberg focuses on the impact of the attacks on the civilian population. Vibeke stops by to explain her own story on the making of this powerful film and the impact the Israeli attack continues to have the people of Gaza.
“Few antiwar films register with the disturbing immediacy and visceral terror of “Tears of Gaza,” Vibeke Lokkeberg’s extraordinary docu set amid the 2008-09. What’s shown is a revelation.” – John Andersen, Variety
“Perhaps the ultimate anti-war film. A compelling film about war.” – Kirk Honeycutt, The Hollywood Reporter
