The Truth: Lost at Sea & Home
23. Oktober 2018
In 2010, global activists launched the Freedom Flotilla, a convoy of humanitarian ships, to highlight the suffering of Palestinians in illegally-blockaded Gaza, and break this blockade.
Israel attacked the Flotilla in international waters, killing & wounding dozens & imprisoning hundreds of international participants.
This historic event transformed into a battle for the hearts & minds of the world.
Shot from aboard the flotilla, directed & narrated by one of its survivors & following up on media coverage, the film reveals the attack, and how the dead activists and their comrades defending the vessels were portrayed.
The film shows the life-changing voyage preparations and launch, utilizing numerous sources, and analysing claims of Israeli officials. These claims are juxtaposed with the survivors’ statements, including some never-before-seen footage from aboard the vessels.
The film reveals what really happened and how it was spun in traditional and online media outlets.
Original Version (English Language only)
In addition, we will also show a short documentary, called "Home", of director Berber Verpoest. It tells the story of three young Palestinians living in East Jerusalem, each trying to build a future in their own way. All of them face the same barriers when it comes to life under Israeli occupation, but perspectives may be very different depending on where one comes from and what the ambitions are.
