Abby Martin is an American journalist and TV presenter. She hosted Breaking the Set on RT America rom 2012 to 2015. In 2015, Martin launched the investigative documentary and interview series The Empire Files, originally hosted by Telesur and now continuing as an independent program.
Her debut feature film, Gaza Fights for Freedom began while she was reporting in Palestine and was denied entry into Gaza by the Israeli government on the accusation she was a “propagandist.” So Abby connected with a team of journalists in Gaza to produce the film through the blockade.
This collaboration shows you Gaza’s protest movement like you’ve never seen before. Filmed during the height of the Great March of Return protests, it features exclusive footage of demonstrations where 200 unarmed civilians have been killed by Israeli snipers since March 30, 2018.
The documentary tells the story of Gaza past and present, showing rare archival footage that explains the history never acknowledged by mass media. Victims are heard from the ongoing massacre, including journalists, medics and the family of internationally-acclaimed paramedic, Razan al-Najjar.
At its core, Gaza Fights for Freedom is a thorough indictment of the Israeli military for war crimes, with legal documentation and photographic evidence.
