ARAB FILM FEST presents: THE WAR AROUND US
The War Around Us
The Arab Film Festival is proud to present the Bay Area Premiere and Q&A with director Abdallah Omeish!
In the winter of 2008 Ayman Mohyeldin was the only American living in the Gaza Strip. When the ceasefire between Israel and Hamas was broken and the first bomb dropped on Gaza, Mohyeldin and fellow journalist and friend Sherine Tadros found themselves the only Western reporters there to capture it. This film chronicles the bonds of friendships under stress, the ethics of journalism in conflict and above all, the resilience of humans during war. With never-before-seen footage and testimonies reported from one of the most dangerous places on earth, the film bears witness to how Gaza changed them forever. Winner of Best Documentary at World Premiere for Newport Film Festival April 2012. The Arab Film Festival is proud to present the Bay Area Premiere and Q&A with director Abdallah Omeish. www.arabfilmfestival.org. 75 mins, 2011. WED at 7:30 only!
