With Blood

This documentary follows ordinary people’s efforts to overcome extraordinary obstacles in pursuit of routine health care in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. Shot on location with patients and health workers over seven months, this film offers a thought-provoking, compassionate perspective on life in the Occupied Palestinian Territories.

Military checkpoints that lie between villages and cities often prevent the movement of ambulances and the infirm, forcing critical cases to take treacherous bypass routes through olive groves and over rocky, mountainous terrain. Medics, ambulance drivers, and doctors negotiate these shiftings barries in order to deliver care.

Resistance here comes not in the form of guns and bombs, but rather in the people's determination to continue to strive for life and health in the face of adversity. With Blood offers unique access to these often overlooked stories and explores how the confict in the region exacerbates already difficult and traumatic situations.

"An important and powerful film. The story is told through the voices of people seeking medical treatment (including kidney dialysis and chemotherapy), and those trying to deliver it, and the obstacles they encounter by being in an occupied territory... Useful to those studying the Palestinians, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and global health care disparities. Recommended" - Fran Mentch, Cleveland State University, Educational Media Reviews Online (EMRO)
