We are showing the film "We Are Here – Young Gaza on Stage"  against the backdrop of the devastating war in Gaza.

Especially now, we want to show people's lives in Gaza, to give "Gaza" a face or in this particular case the many faces of the actors, their stories and their  longing for a life in peace, security and dignity.

The  film accompanies a group of young actors from the Ashtar Theater in  Gaza, who are to perform their play "The Gaza Monologues" about the war experiences of teenagers for the first time in Ramallah in the West  Bank. The play has already been performed by many other groups around  the world, including at the UN headquarters in New York. Only the actors  from Gaza were never able to show their own play anywhere else because  they were not allowed to leave Gaza. The invitation to Ramallah presents  a new opportunity.

After the film, which was produced in  cooperation with the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation's Palestine Office,there will be a film discussion between Duha Almusaddar (RLS Palestine and Jordan) and Katja Herrmann (RLS Berlin).
