The Australian documentation "Eyeless in Gaza" shows impressively how many media reports about Israel. It makes clear how deliberately tendentiously the message selection fails and which is often the direction for the reporter. Audiatur-Online has spoken with the filmmaker Robert Magid.
"Eyeless in Gaza is a very important film that gives factual accounts that sometimes the press, for whatever reason, does not do."
“We’re not just talking bad journalism. We’re talking about journalism that functions as a tool of a terrorist organization, Hamas: breathlessly pushing its narrative, whether cowed by its threats, sympathetic to its cause, or simply ignorant.”
"A revealing film showing a side of Gaza the mainstream media are reluctant to show. An indictment of the inhuman Hamas regime and incurious western journalists."
"This magnificent film tells a disturbing story, of the truth behind the distortions in much of the media of the coverage of Israel and the Gaza Strip. It is essential viewing for anyone interested in the Middle East."
