Itai Anghel:

Two Days Inside Gaza

A screening and discussion on

Back to Gaza: A Short Film

In Gaza, it’s not enough for soldiers to keep their eyes peeled for snipers on rooftops or terrorists hiding in the shadows. The danger might come from an enemy they’ll never see, gripping a remote detonator, ready to set off a charge right in front of them, or from a threat popping out of the “terror city” of tunnels below.

 

Itai Anghel, an intrepid Israeli reporter, captured that reality during two days inside Gaza with a reconnaissance unit of IDF reserve fighters as they made their way into a mosque and school complex. He has now cut his footage into a riveting short film that follows the soldiers as they make their way through the danger, taking fire and discovering grenades, AK-47s and vests inside the school. Throughout they are haunted by their last mission in Gaza, in 2014, when some of their comrades were kidnapped and killed in a tunnel.

 

He joins us to screen Back to Gaza: A Short Film followed by a discussion of what he saw and heard embedded with soldiers under unimaginable pressure.

 

Itai Anghel reports for Uvda, the Israeli equivalent of 60 Minutes. He has spent 30 years hopping from hotspot to hotspot: Afghanistan, Rwanda, Gaza, Syria, Lebanon, Iraq and the Islamic State, where he was the only Israeli journalist to report from inside. He is the youngest-ever recipient of the Sokolov Prize, Israel’s Pulitzer Prize, and was nominated for an International Emmy for his reporting from the front lines in Ukraine in Last Stop Before Kyiv.
