Showing Thursday, Sept 6th, in Cambridge

*When/where*
7 pm
243 Broadway, Cambridge - corner of Broadway and Windsor, entrance on 
Windsor

*Gaza Strip*
74 minutes

Gaza Strip follows a range of people and events following the election 
of Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, including the first major armed 
incursion into "Area A" by IDF forces during this intifada. The film is 
filmed almost entirely in a verite style, presented without narration 
and with little explanation, focusing on ordinary Palestinians rather 
than politicians and pundits. More observation than political argument, 
Gaza Strip offers a rare look inside the stark realities of Palestinian 
life and death under Israeli military occupation.

Reviews
"This documentary is vastly revealing ... and it's bigger than a summer 
blockbuster, more important than all our movie stars or the academy 
awards ..."
- StaticMultimedia.com

"... well-made and harrowing documentary ... you can understand my 
desperate desire not to believe what I was seeing."
- Jordan Hiller, www.bangitout.com

"... offering sequences that could rival Bunuel or Fellini ... one of 
the most important documentaries of recent times."
- Phil Hall, Film Threat
