GAZA to release across Ireland and UK on 9th August
04 Jul 2019 : News Desk
Gaza
The award-winning feature documentary Gaza, directed by Garry Keane (The Deafening, The Writing in the Sky) and award-winning conflict photographer Andrew McConnell is set to be released in cinemas across Ireland and the UK on Friday, 9th August.

Bringing us to a unique place beyond the reach of television news reports Gaza reveals a world rich with eloquent and resilient characters, offering us a cinematic and enriching portrait of a people attempting to lead meaningful lives against the rubble of perennial conflict.
 


Since its world premiere at the renowned Sundance Film Festival earlier this year Gaza has been selected for some of the top documentary and film festivals nationally and internationally including the Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival and the Virgin Media Dublin International Film Festival where it picked up the Dublin Film Critics Circle Award for Best Documentary.  It also screened at the inaugural Docs Ireland festival earlier this month where it was awarded the Pull Focus Award for Best New Irish Documentary.

The documentary is directed and produced by Garry Keane and Andrew McConnell for Real Films and Brendan J. Byrne (No Stone Unturned, Bobby Sands: 66 Days) for Fine Point Films alongside Paul Cadieux (P.S. Jerusalem, The Settlers). It was funded by Screen Ireland, Filmoption International, ZDF/ARTE with support from Northern Ireland Screen.

Wildcard Distribution will be releasing Gaza in Irish and UK cinemas on Friday 9th August.
