On this day, 7 years ago, August 15-22, 2005, the State of Israel underwent an internally polarizing and extraordinary dramatic event which would become known as the disengagement from the Gaza Strip. The film 'Withdrawal From Gaza' offers a personal behind-the-scenes look, both before and during the evacuation, at the people whose lives would forever be impacted by the events which unfolded during those difficult weeks. With the ramifications of the disengagement from Gaza still very evident today, this emotional documentary film takes you back to —––––––––––––––––––-experience the event from the perspective of both the settler and the soldier.
Please note: Statistics at the end of the film are from 2007 when the film was completed.
