This debut feature film by journalist Abby Martin began while reporting in Palestine, where she was denied entry into Gaza by the Israeli government on the accusation she was a “propagandist.” So Abby connected with a team of journalists in Gaza to produce the film through the blockade.
This collaboration shows you Gaza’s protest movement like you’ve never seen before. Filmed during the height of the Great March Of Return protests, it features exclusive footage of demonstrations where 200 unarmed civilians have been killed by Israeli snipers since March 30, 2018.
The documentary tells the story of Gaza past and present, showing rare archival footage that explains the history never acknowledged by mass media. Victims are heard from the ongoing massacre, including journalists, medics and the family of internationally-acclaimed paramedic, Razan al-Najjar.
At its core, ‘Gaza Fights For Freedom’ is a thorough indictment of the Israeli military for war crimes, with legal documentation and photographic evidence.
Why we’re currently charging a rental fee:
1. ‘Gaza Fights For Freedom’ was funded by donations from our supporters. But our fundraising efforts only covered about half of the production costs. Additional donations can be made at Patreon.com/EmpireFiles
2. Abby Martin will be doing a national tour September-October, showing ‘Gaza Fights For Freedom’ in theaters nationwide. After the screening tour ends, we will make the film more accessible. Click here to get info on the tour.
