Films for Friday

I've discovered two Palestinian animated films thanks to the smart people at ISM that I believe are must-sees. The first is a short film (more like an advertisement) concerning the lack of freedom of movement for the 1.5 million Palestinians in Gaza. Does the job pretty well of showing the frustrations concerning movement in the enclave:

The second is a three-part short animated film written and directed by a very talented Palestinian crew and produced by the World Health Organization's West Bank and Gaza Branch. The film is based on a true story of a women's struggle fighting breast cancer and the siege of the Gaza Strip. It is a very moving film, very well done, and I would highly recommend it if you have a spare half hour in your day. It is well worth it:
