A brief, two-week excursion to the Gaza Strip turns into an extended study of the Palestinian Intifada and the damaging effects of the Israeli occupation in this feature-length documentary from American filmmaker James Longley. Filmed over the course of three months and culled from over seventy-five hours of footage, Longley attempts to give a human face to the longstanding conflict by offering an intimate look into the daily lives of average Palestinians. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

Nerve Gas Hoax by tarnsman August 19, 2009 - 7:51 PM PDT

This film could be called "Voices from the Gaza Strip." It is one sided. However, it serves as a megaphone for voices from one community. So perhaps that is fair.

What is not fair is the film's very strong implication that Israel launched a nerve gas attack on Gaza Strip during the filming. There is no evidence of this. It appears the film either took words and action out of context, or else was part of fabrication.

An unfortunate one-sided viewpoint. by AGeller November 14, 2006 - 8:42 PM PST

So much could have been accomplished if the goal of the "documentary" were fairly presented. The Israelis are not accurately presented as simply wishing to live in peace against the constant barrage of Arab terrorists attacks against women and children. My gosh, the only languages that this trash propaganda can be viewed is English, French, and Arabic. What about Hebrew, the language of Israel, the other half/victim of the Arab induced conflict?!!! Peace is not one-sided if the goal is truly peace. The Arabs don't include Hebrew b/c they don't recognize Israeli's 2000+ year claim to the tiny oil-free spot of land. The agenda of hate and not peace is transparent and not worthy of a rental.

A sobering antedote to a crisis that mainstream media is always at pains to under or misreport.
