I shall not hate

by Tal Barda, Canada, 2024, 90' Greek Premiere

From Gaza’s Jabaliya refugee camp to the University of Toronto and the Israeli Supreme Court, I shall not hate follows the uncharted path of Dr. Izzeldin Abuelaish, the first Palestinian doctor to work in an Israeli hospital delivering babies, whose ethos of forgiveness and reconciliation is put to the ultimate test when an Israeli tank bombs his home, killing his three daughters. Against all odds, he turns his tragedy into a global campaign to eradicate hatred. After the Hamas attack on 7 October and the subsequent war on Gaza, the doctor’s journey becomes even more fateful for the possibility of imagining a future for Palestinians and Israelis. I shall not hate is a letter of tolerance from a deeply inspiring man with a message as urgent as ever.
