We're excited to bring back Gaza Surf Club to #TPFFTEN as one of our #NextGenFilms! Trapped in "the world's largest open-air prison" and ruled by war, a new generation is drawn to the beaches. Sick of #occupation and political gridlock, they find their own personal freedom in the waves of the Mediterranean - they are the surfers of #Gaza. The film is a portrait of people who dare to dream beyond the confines of their reality.
