GAZA: HEALTH UNDER SIEGE takes us into the streets and hospitals of Gaza.  Here you will witness firsthand the daily realities affecting the management of human health-related systems under the blockade: access to clean water and hospital care as well as effective food and waste management. 

Filmed in Gaza City, the audience will meet a variety of local doctors, nurses, street vendors, water workers, waste pickers and children to learn what is life like behind Israel’s massive wall surrounding Gaza.  Having suffered through three wars over eight years, Gaza is in the midst of an ongoing eleven-year blockade imposed by Israel and an authoritarian Hamas government.  Gaza City is a zone of major tension, making daily life for its residents extremely difficult.  Many public employees, whether they are doctors in the large hospitals or waste management supervisors in the garbage dump, have been working without pay for over seven years.  And yet despite this, the provision of basic public services continues through the tremendous efforts of people trying to keep the city functioning. 

This is a story about extraordinary citizens trying to keep others alive and healthy, whether it be by securing access to clean water while maintaining waste management systems, or ensuring that the hospital emergency rooms have power. GAZA: HEALTH UNDER SIEGE is an extraordinary journey of those who live behind the wall.
