Today on Radioactivity, Rob Lorei speaks with Palestinian filmmaker Fida Qishta about her award winning documentary Where Should The Birds Fly. The film shows what life is like for the residents of Gaza- a Palestinian area captured and controlled by Israel since 1967. It begins with chilling footage of Israeli bulldozers destroying houses in Rafah in 2004.
Qishta, a native of Rafah, the city in the south of the Gaza Strip, watched her parents’ house of 30 years crumble under the bulldozers. As it was destroyed, her father told her and her family to leave and keep walking. “He feared if our eyes took in the sight, our hearts would be filled with hate,” Qishta says.
