The War Around Us


In 2008, two best friends found themselves trapped in one of the most dangerous places on earth as the only western journalists in the Gaza Strip on what was supposed to be a 24-assignment. The War Around Us captures the collision of two friends and colleagues as they witness and cover one of the most disturbing wars of our time. As missiles shower the Gaza Strip and unspeakable atrocities emerge, the pair is torn by fierce professional rivalry , personal fear and grim humor - with no way out and the whole world watching.
