In the outskirts of Gaza City, a community of farmers is about to celebrate a wedding, the first celebration since the last war. Amal, Fuad, and their family have lost everything, but as they rebuild their neighorbood, they face their most difficult task: piecing together their own memory.

Our take

A remarkable work from Italian filmmaker Stefano Savona, this harrowing account of a 2009 Israeli massacre in a Palestinian village unfolds with procedural clarity. Told through an evocative series of hand-drawn, animated flashbacks, Samouni Road is a devastating reckoning with military atrocity.
