Directed by Mohamed Jabaly, 80 mins
Ambulance is a raw, first-person account of the war in July 2014. Mohamed Jabaly, a young man from Gaza City joins an ambulance crew as the war approaches. What is it like to live under constant threat? How can Mohamed find his place in a country under siege, where there seems to be no foreseeable future? We experience the war through Mohamed’s eyes, watching directly from the passenger seat, as he comes of age among dead bodies, terrified families, and the constant risk of sudden death.
In response to the dark chaos of war, Mohamed learns to rely on his ambulance captain and crew, who in turn support Mohamed to make a film that expresses both the trauma and hope of the too-often invisible citizens of Gaza.
