Electrical Gaza

Rosalind Nashashibi

UK/Palestine, 2015
17 minutes 53 Seconds

In ‘Electrical GazaRosalind Nashashibi combines her footage of Gaza, and the fixer, drivers and translator who were her constant company, with animated scenes. She presents Gaza as under a spell; isolated, suspended in time, difficult to access and highly charged. She shows us Gaza as she experienced it in the quiet pause before the onslaught of Israeli bombardment in the summer of 2014. Nashashibi travelled to Gaza with producer Kate Parker and cinematographer Emma Dalesman.

Commissioned by the Trustees of Imperial War Museum.

Director of Photography: Emma Dalesman. Producer: Kate Parker.
