Dear All,
I have the pleasure to invito you to this particular movie
" A Bottle in the Gaza Sea" Protected content
from Thierry Binisti with Agathe Bonitzer and Mahmud Shalaby

Jerusalem and Gaza - less than a hundred kilometres separate the two cities; home to Tal, a 17-year-old recent French immigrant to Jerusalem, and Naïm, a 20-year-old Palestinian confined to Gaza. After witnessing a bombing at her local café, Tal refuses to accept that only hatred can exist between these two peoples. She slips a message into a bottle, thrown into the Gaza Sea, that will be discovered by Naïm. From there begins an email correspondence and the emergence of a slim hope that their burgeoning friendship may give them the strength to face the world and to change it in their own small way.
