Synopsis

Elli Thor is an Icelandic photographer, surfer, and former kayaker. A decade ago, Elli nearly drowned under a waterfall while kayaking a challenging Icelandic river. The near-death experience became a catalyst for personal growth and his professional career. After walking away from kayaking, a newfound passion for surfing and the birth of his daughter Unnur gave him a new perspective worth living for.

Gaza Graph (2020) – work in progress project

(r. Yousef Nateel)

70 min

 

Tracing the presence of everything from the earliest glass plate negatives to contemporary digital photography the director explores the way in which Gaza has been documented across the decades. Travelling across Gaza City we meet the successors of the city’s former Armenian photographers as well as contemporary practitioners and gain insight into histories of migration, injustice and Gaza’s social and political past.

 

Yousef Nateel is a director/filmmaker passionate about telling stories for change. He is CEO of Skills Media Production and has worked with a variety of NGOs developing media projects in Gaza. The development of Gazagraph was supported by A. M. Qattan Foundation. 

Hussein Owda is a Palestinian film producer and former CEO for Zaitoon for Animation and Video Games. He also teaches media at university level.
