DEATH IN GAZA
Thursday at 9:30 p.m. on HBO
In spring 2003, filmmaker James Miller and reporter Saira Shah set out to get a firsthand look at the violence that permeates the Middle East. But Miller became a victim of that violence when he was shot and killed by an Israeli tank while he carried a white flag
in the darkness on May 2.
No one has been held accountable for Miller's death, which was recorded by another film crew.
This "America Undercover" presentation tells Miller's story and that of the Palestinian children he and Shah (Peabody Award-winners for films "Unholy Wars" and "Beneath the Veil") interviewed before his death.
The filmmakers documented the lives of three Palestinian children in Gaza -- 12-year-old boys Ahmed and Mohammed and 16-year-old Najla, a girl -- who lived by the creed of Jihad. By interviewing the next generation, Miller and Shah had hoped to discover how youngsters become willing participants in the conflict. Their plan was to document the Israeli side next.
