Vibrations from Gaza

Vibrations from Gaza delves into the lives of deaf children in Gaza, who witness the violence of Israeli military operations. Amani, Musa, Israa and others share their poignant memories of bombings, drones and collapsing buildings. The film also questions the origin of their deafness: natural or caused by Israeli sonic weapons. 


Vibrations of Gaza provides insight into the experiences of deaf children in the besieged and confined coastal territory of Gaza, Palestine, particularly the violence they endure from Israeli military operations. Born and raised under frequent assaults by occupying forces, children like Amani, Musa, Israa, and others vividly recount memories of bombings and the constant presence of military drones in their sky. The children describe their perceptions of missile flames through vibrations in the air, ground tremors, and the resonance of collapsing buildings. The film also questions whether the deafness of these children is natural or a consequence of Israel's use of sonic weapons.
