Gaza Lives On (2011)
48 minutes – Aljazeera Network, A film by Ashraf Mashharawi
The Israeli blockade may have taken a heavy toll on Gazans, but this film reveals life and hope among the devastation. From farming to building, exporting and journalism, stories are being told that express Gaza’s willingness to live after more than two decades of tight sanctions.

[26 mins – Valentí Films and Me Pica El Codo Producciones] A film by Arnau Llaberia and Cristina Valentí
Mind the Strip tells the story of Ayman Quader, a young Palestinian from the Gaza Strip. As a humanitarian worker, he decides to leave his country to study a Masters in Peace, Conflict and Development Studies at a university in Spain.

Stuck in a country under a horrible siege, Ayman will have to try and find his way out.
