Children of Gaza

Ibraheem

Eleven year old Ibraheem is the son of a fisherman.  On Fridays and school holidays he works on his fathers boat fishing off the coast of Gaza.  This can be quite risky as the fishing boats are often shot at by the Israeli navy who patrol the sea.  Ibraheem’s boat has been captured once and held for over two months. It was shot and set on fire during the making of the film.  

Ibraheem has lived in Gaza all his life and dreams of going to university overseas, travelling outside of Gaza for the very first time.
