Gaza / Sderot

“Life in spite of everything” is the motto of Gaza/Sderot.

This impressive online documentary project reports on the day-to-day experiences of men, women and children on both sides of the Palestinian-Israeli border, in Gaza (Palestine) and Sderot (Israel): their lives and their survival on a daily basis. Over the course of two months, two two-minute films are being placed on the site each day. Under difficult living conditions and the threat of air attacks and bombings, people do keep on working, loving and dreaming. Life in spite of everything.

In order to document this will to live, short chronicles (2 minutes each) will be shot by both Israeli and Palestinian teams, day after day for two months. These short stories will follow six characters from Gaza and six from Sderot. In this way, we will have a new story of each character every week, and the viewer will be able to follow them intimately for 10 weeks. The stories will be aired via the Internet and users will have a personal, interactive and non-linear access to these contents on the site ARTE France which will include the videos, blogs, forums, links etc.

Gaza Sderot is an original project broadcast by Arte.tv, the official site of ARTE, the French-German cultural television station, in coproduction with an Israeli team – Alma Films/Trabelsi Productions in cooperation with The Sapir College in Sderot, a Palestinian team – Ramattan Studios, a French documentary production company – Bo Travail ! and an interactive production company Upian.com.

On Saturday, October 25th, Gaza Sderot won the “Prix Europa” which took place in Berlin.
