Synopsis by Andrea LeVasseur
Directed by British TV cameraman James Miller, Death in Gaza was supposed to be an HBO documentary about children living in the Arab-Israeli war zone. However, Miller was shot and killed by an Israeli soldier during production. Producer Saira Shah compiles the footage and completes the film. Includes interviews with three Palestinian children living in Rafah, a war-torn city on the Gaza strip. Ahmed, Mohammed, and Najla have had their neighborhoods and families torn apart by war, while their school fosters hateful propaganda. Paramilitary organizations offer tempting opportunities for martyrdom. Death in Gaza was shown at the Berlin Film Festival in 2004.
