Red Carpet Human Rights Film Festival is a festival for short and long narrative and documentary films that highlights human rights issues, mainly in Palestine and generally all over the world.
Filmmakers in the Gaza Strip this week held a film festival amid the ruins of a neighborhood that was devastated by the worst fighting of last summer’s war with Israel.
Eight months after the war, most of Gaza City’s Shujaiyeh district has yet to be rebuilt. But festival organizers bulldozed through the rubble, hauled in massive power cables, and grappled with the threat of unexploded weapons lingering from the July-August conflict.
On Tuesday, they finally rolled out a red carpet for the opening ceremony of theKarama Gaza Film Festival, nestled between the hollow shells of Shujaiyeh broken buildings.
Al-Mozayen, a 50-year-old filmmaker from Gaza City and a director at Lama Film, said his dream is to open a cinema in Gaza — the last theater was closed during the Palestinian uprising against Israel in the late 1980s. In the meantime, he wanted to bring movies to Gaza whichever way he could, so he contacted Jordan’s Karama Film Festival about holding a simultaneous event in the Gaza Strip.
With their support, as well as that of other groups including Amnesty International’sMovies that Matter Foundation, they pulled off the first film festival in Gaza since the 2014 war. Al-Mozayen’s office and entire film archive were destroyed during the seven-week conflict between Israel and Hamas, the movement that controls Gaza.
