Tears of Gaza ~ Terrifying Brutality & Resilience

I just saw this Tears of Gaza trailer, a documentary on the terrifying brutality of war in the Levant and the enduring resilience of the survivors. Directed by Vibeke Løkkeberg who states...
"Witnessing the maiming and killing of children in a war, without being able to do anything about it, is a great challenge.
The short glimpses of children’s faces displayed on my TV set, after they had lived through the war, was my motivation for making Tears of Gaza. A protest against all wars grew inside me. Wars are senseless, destructive, unworthy of mankind. Wars are never a solution to bilateral problems in the long run."
Thanks to Bassam Hajhamad for spotting this.
