Description

This Is Palestine

Gerry McColgan / Ireland / 2017 / 50 minutes

Following the journey of Riverdance founder and award-winning director, John McColgan, through the West Bank and Gaza as he explores the impact of ongoing conflict and military occupation on the people who live there. The documentary features powerful interviews with adults and children who have lost their home, land and family members as a result of the conflict. McColgan also spent time with Israeli and Palestinian peace activists working to bring this long-standing conflict to an end.


Co-produced by Tyrone Productions and Trócaire to mark the 50th anniversary of the military occupation of the West Bank, and the 10th anniversary of the Gaza blockade; it highlights the urgent need for a renewed effort to bring a lasting peace to all people of the region.
