Telling Gaza’s Story

Independent film-maker Maurice Jacobsen speaks about efforts he and long-time Palestinian colleagues in Gaza have been making to document the war in Gaza. He has been posting on the Internet short videos integrating current footage of the war sent to him by the Media Goup in Gaza with scenes of Gaza Jacobson captured for a documentary movie not yet released called “We All Live in Gaza.” The brief and affecting videos of “We All Live in Gaza: The War Chronicles” help provide context for the war now going on. Journalist Yousef Al-Jamal, a contributor to an anthology of personal essays and poetry called “Light in Gaza: Writings Born of Fire,” discusses the book, his life growing up in a refugee camp in Gaza, the impact of the 16-year siege of Gaza and the catastrophic war being waged on Gaza.
