Team Gaza (interactive)

Director: Laurens Samsom, Frederick Mansell
Web documentary about the members of a Palestinian soccer team that leaves it up to the viewer to choose a perspective. The team members look at the Israeli occupation in different ways.

Can the inhabitants of the Israel-occupied Gaza Strip chase their dreams? To answer this question, journalists Laurens Samson and Frederick Mansell followed five players from the Palestinian Beach Camp soccer team for one season. Despite the fact that the occupation leaves its traces, the team members each find their way to cope with the daily terror: one wants to go to battle, while another literally tries to rebuild the ravaged land. With the web documentary, the viewer can choose a perspective.
