Trapped in “the world’s largest open-air prison” and ruled by war, a new generation is drawn to the beaches. Sick of occupation and political gridlock, they find their own personal freedom in the waves of the Mediterranean – they are the surfers of Gaza.
Taking four years to complete (including the harrowing war in Gaza in 2014), Gaza Surf Club shows an incredibly engaging and enlightening story of a group of people whose similarities with our ‘human condition’ bring out the wrangling contrasts of our differences.
Following the screening there will be a Q&A with the Brighton & Hove Palestine Solidarity Campaign and Jan Selby who is a Professor of International Relations specialising in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict at the University of Sussex.
