We will also be joined by Mohamed Jabaly, a film maker from Gaza who is in London promoting his new documentary, Ambulance.
Mohamed Jabaly, a young man from Gaza City, joins an ambulance crew as war approaches, looking for his place in a country under siege, where at times there seems to be no foreseeable future. While thousands of things are published on the recurring violence in Gaza, the stories behind them remain hidden. Not this one. youtube.com/watch?v=xZ6iAxxKTxk
