I saw this very moving film yesterday at the London Palestine Film Festival. Directed by Ahmad Habash, a Palestinian who has lived in Gaza, I found it remarkable not just because of the accurate portrayal of the conditions in Gaza, but also because of the sensitive way the issue of breast cancer is shown.
If you like it, please blog it and repost it yourselves to spread the word.
Synopsis: Fatenah is a 27 year old woman living in the Gaza Strip. Her life is similar to the lives of many other women in Gaza. Her life changes the day she discovers she has breast cancer.
This animation, the first produced in Palestine, shows with great accuracy the scenarios of Gaza city. The 27 minutes long story is a breath-taking journey into Fatenah’s daily struggles. It uncovers the human drama of her fight to survive.
