“Ambulance tracks the harrowing chaos amidst a state-run military operation on civilians.” – Sheffield Doc/Fest
The latest DocHouse First release is a raw, first-person account of the Gaza war in the summer of 2014.
Mohamed Jabaly, a young man from Gaza City, is given permission to join an ambulance crew and films his experiences. As war approaches, he is searching for his place in a country under siege, where at times there seems to be no foreseeable future.
The resulting footage is unflinching in its depiction of the effects of war and tells a story that goes beyond the headlines, to the reality of life in Gaza.
