For many years we have had a strong associations withCinemaDays Film Festival in Palestine,showingdocumentary work at each others’s festivals. Insolidaritywith what they are currently facing, we have organised this screening.Belowis a message from our friends:
"As we are not able to organise our festival which was supposed to take place from the 24th of October till the 1st of November. We want to suggest hosting one screening on the same day -2nd Nov- with our allies all over the world. The screening would be preceded by a short video, an edit of the stories coming out of Gaza facing this unprecedented human crisis. This is a small step that we think might give way for the Palestinian narrative that has been stolen since 1948.”

Trapped in "the world's largest open-air prison" and ruled by war, a new generation is drawn to the beaches. Sick of occupation and political gridlock, they find their own personal freedom in the waves of the Mediterranean – they are the surfers of Gaza.
