Gaza, the summer of 2014. The word is of a new Israeli offensive. While most people want to flee, Mohamed Jabaly — a young man in his twenties — wants to help. He joins an ambulance crew, maneuvering their way through a city under siege with their own lives on the line. Mohamed documents the war with his camera, seen from the inside of the ambulance, and out among people who will have their lives changed forever, as the bombs keep falling on his home town.
AMBULANCE is a raw first-person account of the conflict in Gaza. Not only does it show the horrors of war, but also the brave people trying to help, despite being trapped inside the conflict themselves. It is a brave and stunning piece of filmmaking that manages to be both merciless and human, presented by an exciting new filmmaker who demands to be heard.
Mohamed Jabaly (b. 1990) is a filmmaker and artist from Gaza. He wishes to present stories from the Palestine community through music, film and photography. AMBULANCE is his first feature documentary, and it has already received high praise from film festivals such as Doc Fest in Sheffield and IDFA in Amsterdam.
