This film examines the Israeli attack on the 2010 Freedom Flotilla, a convoy of humanitarian ships that tried to highlight the suffering of Palestinians in Gaza and break its blockade. Rifat Audeh, one of the survivors aboard the Mavi Marmara, combines footage shot aboard the Freedom Flotilla with subsequent media coverage, to show how the dead activists and their comrades who defended their vessels were portrayed. The film reveals what really happened and how it was spun in traditional and online media outlets. Amman | 2017, 56 min.
