Free DVDs for Gaza Home Screenings

The War Around Us

Thanks to a generous donation, we are providing free DVDs (while supplies last) of the award-winning documentary The War Around Us to people who will hold a home screening with 50 people or less. (To organize a larger screening in your community, please contact the film maker.)

Synopsis of the film

The War Around Us is the true story of the only two international journalists on the ground in Gaza as Israel bombarded and invaded in 2008-9. Al Jazeera’s Cairo-born, Arab-American Ayman Mohyeldin and Arab-British Sherine Tadros reported from Gaza City throughout the devastating 22-day assault.

This riveting and introspective award-winning film chronicles the bonds of friendships under stress, the ethics of journalism in conflict, and people’s resilience during war. With never-before-seen footage and testimonies reported from one of the most besieged places on earth, the film bears witness to how Gaza changed these two world-famous journalists forever.

The crisis in Gaza is not a natural disaster for which we should simply donate humanitarian aid. Unlike a tsunami or an earthquake, which we cannot stop, this is a man-made disaster – and one that we are all funding through the over $8.5 million per day of our tax money to Israel. We must increase the number of people calling on Congress and President Obama to end the carnage in Gaza. The way to do that is by each of us giving our friends, family, and neighbors the facts!
