The situation in Gaza told from beyond the grave.

This film follows Italian human rights activist Vittorio Arrigoni as he campaigns for the fishermen of Gaza.
Arrigoni was a member of the International Solidarity Movement (ISM) committed to resisting the Israeli occupation of Palestinian land using non-violent methods.

In the film he relates his experience of Israel's war on Gaza and explains why he chose to visit and live in Gaza in the first place.

On April 14, 2011 Vittorio Arrigoni was abducted in Gaza.

His kidnappers released a video of him and demanded the release of Salafists detained by Hamas. The following day Arrigoni was found dead by Hamas security forces in a house in the north of Gaza. This film was made before his death.

Staying Human can be seen from Tuesday, June 28, at the following times GMT: Tuesday: 2000; Wednesday: 1200; Thursday: 0100; Friday: 0600; Saturday: 2000; Sunday: 1200.
