Featuring poetry and letters from Palestinian and Israeli writers, mixed in with archive footage, this sounds like a poignant performance art piece about reconciliation and dialogue in the Middle East.

About A Letter to a Friend in Gaza

In the film-maker Amos Gitai’s multimedia performance, four actors—two Palestinian and two Israeli—address the foundations of the conflict at the Israel-Gaza border. Letter to a Friend in Gaza stitches together film, music, and poetry in a tribute to French writer Albert Camus’ Letters to a German Friend, in which he sought to find common ground between warring peoples. Likewise, Gitai seeks to create a space for listening among opposed perspectives.
