A couple of years ago, Maurice Jacobsen contacted me out of the blue. I remember it well because I was sitting in Cairo trying to return to Gaza, and Maurice was an American who wanted to travel to Gaza also. He’s a filmmaker, and producer-director at Inshallah Media Project.
I couldn’t give him much encouragement because I hadn’t found any cracks in Israel’s tight siege of the Gaza Strip. But Maurice didn’t give up.
The fruit of his labors can be seen in this wonderful short film. Congratulations Maurice! Thank you for bringing all of these Palestinian artists to our attention.
