From the director of Occupation 101 comes a feature film recounting the experiences of two foreign journalists who covered Israel’s invasion of the Gaza Strip in 2008-2009. The War Around Us debuts this Sunday, April 29, at the 2012 Newport Beach Film Festival in Newport Beach, CA.
Ayman Mohyeldin and Sherine Tadros were the only two foreign journalists who managed to provide live coverage of Operation Cast Lead.

Here’s a trailer for the film:
