Death in Gaza is the tale of a twisted world where the greatest glory is to die a martyr, and of the filmmaker who becomes part of the story he sets out to tell. This poignant and powerful documentary takes a shocking, firsthand look at the culture of hate that permeates the West Bank and Gaza, which helps perpetuate the perennial violence between Palestinians and Israelis. Starting out in the city of Nablus (where as many as 80 percent of suicide bombings are planned), Emmy-winning filmmaker James Miller follows reporter Saira Shah as she attempts to unravel the cycle of violence. Travelling to Gaza they meet three Palestinian children - two 12-year-old boys and a 16-year-old girl - who have grown up trapped between the Israeli army and Palestinian militants as their world crumbles around them. The film ends in May of 2003, on a day like many others in this region - with death - but on this day the victim is renowned filmmaker James Miller, who is shot dead by an Israeli soldier in the Gaza Strip.
