THE APOLLO OF GAZA (subtitled in English)

Presented in original multilingual version with English subtitles.

In August 2013, an ancient statue of Apollo was found in the Mediterranean, off the coast of Gaza. A few days later, the treasure disappeared. As filmmaker Nicolas Wadimoff combs the streets of Gaza and Jerusalem, he and his attentive camera take on a detective’s role. Examining faces and recording contradictory accounts, the investigation reveals not only each person’s ambitions and beliefs, but the complexities of a delicate region whose tensions seem to be laid bare by the archaeological incident. Whether it’s a hoax or a national treasure, the Apollo of Gaza gives the filmmaker a starting point for a fascinating meditation on the importance of cultural heritage and its role in a nation’s affirmation – or its negation.
