‘Gaza’ is a multi award-winning feature length documentary film made in 2019 by Garry Keane and Andrew McConnell and was Ireland’s entry for Best International Feature Oscar in 2020.

The Guardian newspaper described the film as having a ‘real value as a compassionate human document, in showing ordinary people who courageously have to keep going somehow, in the grimmest of conditions’.

‘Gaza’ is being screened in various locations throughout Ireland to raise funds for humanitarian assistance in Gaza with the support of the film makers and Wildcard Distribution.

AMJAAD provides humanitarian assistance and aid in Gaza and supports over 2000 families every year offering transportation to access medical care, as well as giving food, medicine and clothes to poor families who need them. 100% of all donations received by AMJAAD will be spent directly on relief and immediate needs.

This event is hosted by LSAD TUS Department of Digital Arts and Media and the TUS Students Union. All donations will go directly to AMJAAD.

Tickets are available here.
