Fatenah is the first Palestinian animated short feature. It tells the story of Fatenah, a warmhearted woman living in the Gaza Strip with her father and sister. Her desires are simple – to maintain a normal life under the abnormal conditions in Gaza. But when Fatenah discovers a lump near her breast she will be compelled to embark on a journey of torment and loss in order to save these simple dreams from the shattering cruelties surrounding her. Based on a true story, Fatenah poignantly explores the many struggles standing between Gaza’s population and access to the most essential of health services. The film was funded by the World Health Organisation and has won several awards internationally.
