One Day in Gaza | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

One Day in Gaza

The BBC has broadcast a refreshingly unbiased, unflinchingly real documentary telling the story of a fateful day in history from both sides of a divide. One Day in Gaza is a testament to documentary making and a must-watch programme.

A day that will go down in Israeli history as a day of national pride, 14 May 2018 was the day that the US Embassy was moved formally from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. As US and Israeli officials celebrated the event, a few kilometres away on the other side of a wire fence yet a whole world apart, a nation nursed the wounds of a seventy-year old occupation that by the end of that day had claimed the lives of another sixty Palestinians.

Olly Lambert’s documentary forced into the spotlight some of the harsh truths of that fateful day exactly one year ago, confronting his audience with emotionally charged stories of human experience: love, loss and pride seep in excess through Lambert’s camera and into the homes of the viewers. Aided by excerpts from hours of footage compiled from both sides of the conflict, Lambert’s documentary provides a harrowing 58 minutes of raw humanity under a microscope.
