Gaza Surf Club. 2016. Germany/Palestine/USA. Directed by Philip Gnadt, Mickey Yamine. In Arabic, English; English subtitles. 87 min.

Away from the rubble left by a decade of airstrikes, young Palestinians find new freedom surfing the Gaza Strip’s 26-mile coastline. In a state where surfing equipment is contraband, one young man dreams of crafting his own boards, while a teen girl resists strict cultural principles to follow her sporting passion. Shot in breathtaking widescreen, this inspiring film reveals a new generation’s determination to transcend political tragedy.
