OBLITERATED FAMILIES: Bringing the audience closer to the reality of life in Gaza

RSVP on the Facebook Event!

Please join JVP - DC Metro for a film screening of Obliterated Families, followed by a Q+A discussion with the filmmakers, Ala Qandil and Anne Paq.

Obliterated Families is an extremely compelling, award-winning multimedia web documentary that draws attention to the families from Gaza whose lives were shattered during the Israeli offensive in 2014. Blending together striking images, in-depth text, infographics, animations and short videos, the project is designed to bring the audience closer to the reality of life for Palestinians from the Gaza Strip.

Read more about the multimedia documentary, including an interview with producer/ photographer Anne Paq (link here).
