Trailerama: Aisheen (Still Alive in Gaza)

The images we associate with Gaza are explosions, rubble and bullet-holes. There’s plenty of those in Swiss filmmaker Nicolas Wadimoff’s documentary. But he’s more interested in the people doggedly holding on in the face of the Israeli blockade. Interviews and on-the-ground footage show how a domestic resilience has set in. Odd moments of beauty are salvaged from the wreckage. From clowns to rappers, these people aren’t just still alive. They’re also not going anywhere. Produced by Al Jazeera Children’s Channel, whose version of Sesame Street has to be seen to be believed.
