It’s day two at the Input conference in Warsaw and I wanted to share the best project I’ve seen so far. Gaza/Sderot - Life in Spite of Everything is a series of 80 films shot over 40 days — one per day in Gaza and one per day in the town of nearby Sderot. Each is a day-in-the-life style video that follows one of 14 people (seven in each town).

Gaza, Sderot, Live. | Wistful Negligence

Two minute videos from everyday for two months. Two minutes from Gaza. Two minutes from Sderot. No politics to dilute the utterly human, very connectable message(s). A keeper. The two months are over generating a total of 160 minutes.

The French-German cultural channel Arte, has produced an excellent television series which shows the human side of the conflict. Well worth viewing.

On page 30, Elinor Davidov writes about a 40-episode television documentary called Gaza-Sderot, Life in Spite of Everything. Each episode features an interview with an ordinary person on either side of the border, describing daily life. The result is a fascinating combination of drama and banality that makes each episode worth watching. It was co-produced by a staff from Sderot’s Sapir College, Gaza’s Ramattan Studios and the German-French (photos and bio blurbs are here).

And then we quite rightly focus on an web-based video blogging effort called GAZA\SDEROT: Life in Spite of Everything that had been trying, and vows to continue to try, to bring Palestinians and Israelis together with beautifully shot two minute films.

I've come upon an excellent site where you get a real picture of the situation. It's a web documentary on the lives of people on both sides.

If you're interested in getting to know the people of Sderot and of Gaza, I can recommend the Arte project of short films 'Gaza/Sderot - Life in spite of everything' . Many of the people you will see in it (on both sides) have now been forced to leave their homes

As we are getting regular news on the war on the Gaza strip, we may often lack background information. I’d like to share a very good set of small videos on the daily life of 6 peoples in Gaza and Sderot (in Israel, close to the border of the Gaza strip) despite the war situation. It happens to have been broadcast during one month just before the war made the headlines. It is called “Gaza-Sderot”, and it is available here.
