Tears of Gaza – Movie A Must Watch
Vibeke Lokkeberg’s “Tears of Gaza” raises the question: Can any filmmaker do a film about the Israeli-Palentinian conflict without antagonizing someone? Lokkeberg’s film deals with the 2008-09 bombing of Gaza by the Israeli military. Her strategy is to focus on the horrific impact this has on civilians — mostly women and children; in other words, how war affects the innocent. Lokkeberg, a Norwegian actress, author and filmmaker, has scrubbed away all context, political or otherwise. This is a war descended on an urban population.
