RT doc film ‘We love Gaza’ highly commended at intl AIB Awards — RT News

RT’s documentary film, ‘We Love Gaza,’ has received high commendations at the AIB Awards in the International Current Affairs category. The film tells the story of two rival parkour teams finding solace in the extremely dangerous sport amid war.

The RTD branch of the Russian news network received a commendation for the first time, outrunning BBC and Australia’s SBS Television.

“The festival jury had high praise for the story in ‘We Love Gaza,’ as well as the camera work,” RTD chief Ekaterina Yakovleva said. “I would like to thank everyone who took part in the production of this film.”

The documentary allows the Israel-Palestinian conflict to briefly take a back seat, as it explores the reality of life in the Gaza strip by shifting its gaze to two rival teams of free-runners from north and south Gaza, who spend their days training for meets amid ruins.

The sport, also known as parkour, is particularly dangerous in debris-strewn Gaza, where shards of brick and rusty metal stick out at every turn amid the bullet-ridden walls of what were once residential blocks.
