Gaza on Screen Film Festival: Rainbow (2004) directed by Abdel Salam Shehada.
Of Rainbow, his film essay made in the aftermath of Israel’s 2004 attack on Gaza, Shehada says “These
are people who have crossed my path...Some of these rose from among the debris. Carrying their tears,
some were looking for answers to worries that haunted them...Others were exhausted by contemplating
the reality ...They appeared like me...I used to love the camera and believe in what it could do to transfer
the pain...forget sorrows, or may be promise of a better life.”
Followed by Q&A with Abdel Salam Shehada, moderated by Joan Mandell
