Tears of Gaza

Showing Thursday, March 20, in Cambridge
[please download & distribute flyer 

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 
(with overwhelming approval and support of Israelis).

Norwegian director Vibeke Løkkeberg uses local Palestinian crews to 
provide footage of a Palestinian reality largely unseen by the Western 
media. Løkkeberg's film tracks the everyday existence of a people living 
in a city ill-prepared to cope with a tragedy of such scale; it captures 
the stories of three children surviving in Gaza's impoverished 

"/Few antiwar films register with the disturbing immediacy and visceral 
terror of Tears of Gaza. Almost purely observational, "Tears" doesn't 
take sides as much as obliterate politics: the bullet holes in the 
2-year-olds did not arrive by accident... The inherent cruelty of so 
much of the action, committed against civilians with very little 
infrastructure, services or commercial goods, much less equipment to 
fight fires, comes through loud and clear... Production values are good 
overall, but the cinematography is the standout../." ~ John Anderson, 

/"We must blow Gaza back to the Middle Ages, destroying all the 
infrastructure Including roads and water/" ~ Eli Yishai, Israeli Deputy 
Prime Minister, 2001

"/The UN has repeatedly found Israeli's actions in Gaza to be a war 
crime. [destroying infrastructure, targeting civilians, using 
indiscriminate force, using incendiary devices - white phosphorus ...]/  
~Washington's blog
