22nd Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
A Letter to a Friend in Gaza
A film about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict whose author shows uncompromising disapproval of the Gaza blockade, trying to stir responsibility in Israelis for their actions. As his basic tool, he uses readings of thematic stories and poems by Albert Camus, Mahmoud Darwish, Yizhar Smilansky and others.
Amos Gitai (1950) made his debut film in 1972. He focuses on Israeli-Arab conflicts and his works have been presented at many festivals. Last year’s Ji.hlava IDFF screened his doc West of the River Jordan.
