The film has excellent, direct, footage of what is happening on the
ground in Gaza when Israel strikes. You see very rare honest footage of
the impact on peoples lives, while also appreciating the individual
journalists who try to document things that the world would otherwise
For once you can see what is happening without it being just hearsay of
either Israel or Hamas.
Of course being a film about being inside Gaza when Israel attacks it,
it has a certain perspective.
It is not a documentary going into the endless history of who is right
and wrong, but a film which just bears witness to the tragedy of
While it does not talk about Hamas firing rockets into Israel for
example, it also does not try to support Hamas and nor does it attack
Israeli or Jewish people.
In this way, people who try to claim the film is mere propaganda have
to explain how it can be possible that honest and direct images of what
happens when bombs are dropped on civilians doesn't have a truth worth
seeing in it.
Ignore the commentary of the journalists narrating if you like,
although I found it fine (what else would anyone feel if they were in
the same situation), the images and sounds tell an undeniable truth
that only those with an agenda of trying to hide this truth will try to
persuade you from recognizing.
If you are interested in understanding the conflict between Palestine
and Israel, then of course there are many information sources and
perspectives, but this one is undeniably an important one and I believe
anyone who tries to convince you it is not has an agenda of their own.
