WHERE SHOULD THE BIRDS FLY?
Fida Qishta, and Mona Samouni, Palestine, 2013 [PG] English 58 mins
The injustices of everyday life - farmers, fishermen, children and families – are documented in this unique and illuminating film (shot and narrated by Fida Qishta who filmed her own family home being demolished by Israeli bulldozers). The film also covers the 2008/09 Israeli offensive against Gaza. Fida Qishta films the terror and destruction, often at great personal risk, and talks to ten year old Mona whose entire family were killed by Israeli fire. Highly recommended.
