Eyeless in Gaza


The 17th Hong Kong Jewish Film Festival

Directed by Martin Himel 50 mins | Israel | 2016 | Documentary | Hebrew with English and Chinese subtitles (設有中英文字幕)

Q&A with Ben Milstein following the film


“They’re calling it a massacre.” “Children and civilians comprised the vast majority of the 200 killed.” “Israel is targeting… hospitals.” These quotes come directly from international media reports on the 2014 Gaza War. All of them are incorrect, yet they were used to create the narrative that the world, to a great extent, accepted. A narrative that saw Israel as the aggressor. Interviewing Israeli and Palestinian combatants, administrators and civilians, along with analysts, journalists and aid agency officials on the ground, Eyeless in Gaza sets out to find out how this dishonest and incorrect narrative arose… and arrives at a very troubling conclusion.
