The Tinderbox | Global Health Film

The Tinderbox (2020)

Directed by Gillian Mosely, 90 mins

A rare and thought-provoking examination of both sides of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, from its catalyst to why it still rages, to what needs to happen for it to stop.

The Tinderbox combines ancient and more recent history, geopolitical problems (racism, inequality, immigration and fake truths), and psychology, with the deeply personal journey of one person forced to challenge everything they’d been taught about the conflict in Israel and Palestine.

The Tinderbox shows the human face of this conflict by hearing from a wide variety of contemporary voices, ranging from a settler to a political member of Hamas. Today, with a surge in violence affecting civilian populations on both sides, a major humanitarian crisis spiralling in Gaza, and anti-Semitism and Islamophobia as globally controversial as ever, The Tinderbox provides context, shows how history continues to play out in the daily lives of people on either side of the divide, and will empower audiences to make up their own minds.
