ON GAZA’S MIND / Arantza Diez, Carles de la Encarnación

Adham Tobail is a social assistant who works in the only mental health institution existent in Gaza. His daily work leads us to Hakim, a nine year old kid who suffers post-traumatic stress due to an israeli attack upon his neighborhood. Or to Midhat, a family man hunted by phobias that won’t let him have a normal life as he unleashes his frustrations upon his wife and kids. We also meet Ashraf, a schizophrenic who can’t have regular access to medicine due to the Israel’s economic blockade for civilians goods. Or Taami, a deeply depressed elderly man who’s only means to survival is the support of his family. And Misho, a kid severely wounded after an attack of the israeli troops who fights to recover in a rehab center, completing the portrait of these five characters.
