Palestinian Documentary Wins 33rd Goya Award (VIDEO)

The documentary film “Gaza”, directed by Gary Keane and Andrew McConnell, won the “Best Documentary Short Film” Premios Goya Award at the Goya Awards, in Spain. The documentary depicts the lives of Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip when they are not under the nearly 12-year-long Israeli siege.The world titled Gaza as the “largest open prison,” as no one can even imagine how it would look like without a siege.

McConnell, a photojournalist, first visited Gaza in 2010, and, in 2012, he teamed up with documentary filmmaker, Keane, for the film. They focused mostly on subjects with a connection to the sea, including a family of fishermen and a 14-year-old boy from a refugee camp who spends much of his time around the water.
