A Bottle in the Gaza Sea

Une Bouteille dans la mer de Gaza

17-year-old French Tal lives with her family in the Jewish part of Jerusalem. Suicide attacks are a sad part of the everyday life in this city. When a bomb explodes in a café near her house and a young woman dies in the accident, Tal is asking herself why the hatred between Israel and Palestine cannot come to an end. She writes a long letter to an imaginary Palestinian with all her questions and hopes as well as with a request to reply by e-mail. Her older brother, a soldier stationed in Gaza, should send it in a bottle across the ocean. And indeed, some time later, the bottle is found by 20-year-old Naim from Gaza Strip at a beach. After initial hesitation, he sends Tal an e-mail under the name of “Gazaman”, which is the beginning of a lively exchange they both must keep secret. The film is based on the award-winning youth book of the same title written by the French-Israeli writer Valérie Zenatti that was published under the title “Leihst du mir deinen Blick" in Germany in 2006.
