From Under The Rubble - a story from Gaza
HELP BRING THIS GAZA DOCUMENTARY TO THE SCREEN
Zeinat Samouni and her children give their account of what happened when Israeli soldiers came into their Gaza neighbourhood killing 48 members of their extended family.  It challenges the audience to stand in their shoes as survivors of what has become known in Gaza as the Samouni massacre. 
FROM UNDER THE RUBBLE is a high impact, 90min documentary that prompts us to examine the personal, emotional and psychological toll of armed conflict on defenseless civilian populations.  
Financed with the assistance of Screen Australia and the South Australian Film Corporation.

Please support South Australian filmmaker and member of AFOPA, Anne Tsoulis, to bring Zeinat's story from Gaza out to the world.
