'As you return home, to your home, think of others (do not forget the people of the camps).' - Mahmoud Darwish.

'We sink in our choosing to go along with the herd, wicked and enjoyable in its own right?' - Amira Hass.

When today’s current events become our children’s history lessons, how will they view our actions? Letter to a Friend in Gaza stitches together film, music, and poetry in a tribute to French writer Albert Camus’ Letters to a German Friend, in which he sought to find common ground between warring peoples. Likewise, Gitai seeks to create a space for listening among opposed perspectives.

Texts by: Mahmoud Darwish, Yizhar Smilansky, Emile Habibi, Amira Hass, Wislawa Szymborska and Albert Camus.
