Samouni Road. 2018. Italy/France. Directed by Stefano Savona. In Arabic; English subtitles. 130 min.
In January 2009, 29 members of the Samouni family were killed in an Israeli army attack on Gaza. Vérité video is combined with striking black-and-white animation and simulated drone footage to dramatize the catastrophe, underlining the continuing strain the conflict places on Palestinian citizens—and highlighting the surprising resilience of the human spirit.
