FEATURE: "THE WAR AROUND US" Director: Abdallah Omeish
In the winter of 2008 Ayman Mohyeldin was the only American living in the Gaza Strip. When the ceasefire between Israel and Hamas was broken and the first bomb dropped on Gaza, Mohyeldin and fellow journalist and friend Sherine Tadros found themselves the only Western reporters there to capture it.
This film chronicles the bonds of friendships under stress, the ethics of journalism in conflict and above all, the resilience of humans during war.
