It carries the moral lesson of the steps that are needed to live past the effects of the war. The film however inadequately covers the spirit of the children even as they make these kites. Other elements that would have been more inspiring would have included coverage of these children with messages of hope on their kites for example. “Strawberry Fields” was the third film that featured in the Gaza film festival this year showing from 1 pm on the 6th of September. The film is directed by Heller Ayelet.

This film centers on the occupational aspect of the Israeli population. It displays the daily crisis and challenges those farmers of strawberry in Palestine face in Gaza at Beit Lahiya. The film is a clear demonstration of the suffering and loss that these Palestinian farmers have had to encounter because of the conflict of Hamas and Israel from the period of May 2005 to April 2006. It was a documentary that did inspire immense study into the effects of war on agriculture and the future of the nation’s food basket (Jeddah, 1). “Gaza: another kind of tears” was the fourth film in the festival that showed on the second day.

It was directed by Shehada Salam Abdel. This story tells how a wall separated a family for the last four years. The story features one father Abu Maher, who together with a part of his family lived in the Jewish settlement of the Al-Mawasi side of the wall, while Maher and Hussein, his sons, lived in Khan-Jounes on the other side of the wall. Two parts groups of the same family lived about three kilometers away but could not see each other.

Perhaps this was the most moving film that depicted how relationships are torn at the core of society by decision that are made by governments (Wahad, 1). The last film that featured in the Gaza film festivals this year was “Where should the birds fly” as directed by Qishta Fida. The film is reputed to be the first that is a depiction of the life in Gaza following the blockade and siege of Israeli. The film tells a story that features two young women who survived the Israeli Operation Cast Lead.

Samouni Mona who is currently twelve years old together with the director of the film use the film to demonstrate the current spirit of bitterness and the future that awaits Palestinians. This film centers on the impact that the Palestinian population has had to withstand following sanctions and warfare from Israeli military. A look at the life that children have had to live in Gaza is devastating enough to read.
