Area K | 2002
Examines a decade long peaceful relationship between Israeli authorities and Palestinian fisherman in a section of the Mediterranean off the Gaza Strip. Fishermen from the Shati refugee camp formed a partnership with Israelis living in the Dugit settlement on the northern edge of the Gaza Strip. The Palestinians provided the labor and fishing expertise while the Israelis dealt with police officials, permits and taking the fish to market. This hopeful situation, that once transcended politics, was shattered in 2000 by the Palestinian uprising.
