Gaza Hospital was established as the main PLO medical centre in 1970s Lebanon. Now, its shell houses hundreds of Palestinian refugee families. Located between Sabra and Shatila camps, this structure has witnessed key episodes in Palestinian history.

Drawing on archive film and interviews with ex-staff, Pasquini’s doc artfully recounts the hospital’s story, from its celebrated foundation to its destruction and transformation into a vertical refugee camp.

Presented in partnership with MAP. Followed by a panel with director Marco Pasquini, revolutionary filmmaker Monica Maurer, and veteran Gaza Hospital doctor, Swee Ang. Chaired by James Denselow.
