"Killing Gaza
with
Max Blumenthal, director and writer of the new film Killing Gaza, senior editor of the Grayzone Project at AlterNet, and award-winning author of Goliath, Republican Gomorrah, and The 51 Day War
and
Dan Cohen, journalist, cinematographer and editor of Killing Gaza

On May 14th the Israeli military slaughtered at least 60 unarmed Palestinians and wounded 2,700, of whom 200 were children, as some 60,000 massed at Gaza's enclosure fence demanding their Right to Return to their homelands. But this isnt the first time Israel has murdered unarmed Gazan civilians. Independent journalists Max Blumenthal and Dan Cohen, in a film just released to coincide with the Nakba, the Arabic word for catastrophe, which commemorates the 1948 war that uprooted 750,000 Palestinians from their homes, creating a refugee crisis that is still not resolved talk about documenting Israels ongoing assault on Gaza beginning with the 2014 aerial bombings of what is oftentimes described as the largest open-air prison in the world.

Blumenthal and Cohen talk about chronicling the Killing of Gaza, beginning in 2014 and give us the context for and sadly recount their expectation of this latest murderous attack on Palestinians by Israel supported by US tax dollars. They give us a chilling accounts of war crimes committed by the Israeli military, and recount the experiences of the survivors just days after escaping indiscriminate shelling, bombings and summary executions. They talk about walking through the rubble of Gazas devastated landscape and their discussions with the survivors of the slaughter who offer them their testimony of the war crimes they experienced, which they long for the world to recognize and prosecute their torturers.

Our documentarians, talk about their recordation of the daily struggles of the people of Gaza, as they endure, freezing winters, where babies freeze and sweltering summers without shelter. While Blumenthal and Cohen give voice to the pain of a people under constant siege, they also give voice to the Gazans acts of creative resistance and their reaffirmation of life by artistic expression with the brush, and through literary works to youths break-dancing and rapping their resilience, their potential and resolve to break the occupation. Blumenthal and Cohen explain that the people of Gaza collectively will continue to channel their pain, their anger and energy to the maintenance of their history, the preservation of their culture and the reclamation of their land and for a free, free Palestinian.
Produced by Mimi Rosenberg and Ken Nash
