AMBULANCE

With Dir. Mohamed Jabaly

1800 - 2000 31st July 2016

Ambulance is a raw, first-person account of the 2014 war in Gaza.

Mohammed Jabaly, from Gaza City is 23 years old when he picks up a camera and joins an ambulance crew as the war approaches. What is it like to grow up under the constant threat of bombing raids? How can Mohammed find his place in a country under siege, where at times there seems to be no foreseeable future? We experience the carnage through Mohamed’s eyes as he comes of age among broken bodies,

terrified families, and the continuous risk of sudden death. In response to the chaos of war, Mohammed learns to rely on his captain and crew-mates from the ambulance, who in turn support him to make a film that expresses both the trauma and hopes of the too-often invisible citizens of Gaza
