Synopsis: In Palestine, a 14 year old girl called Mariam cares for her disabled mother.
One night, an Israeli “knock-on-roof” bomb is dropped onto their building allowing them only three minutes to escape before it is demolished.
This emotional 11 minute drama depicts the reality of civilians in Gaza, Palestine.
From the Director’s Statement:
I like to see myself as a filmmaker who stands up for the underdog. I have been in that position all of my life and believe that if you have a story to tell, no matter how controversial, then it needs to be told.
My first film was about racial stereotypes, my second about mental health and now my latest film; Three Minute Warning is about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict under the brutal occupation.
I feel that everybody’s voice should be heard, no matter how small.
