We Teach Life, Sir

Gaza may be a warzone, but everyday life for its inhabitants has to continue.

For some of those growing up in the violence, playing music has become an important source of relief.

RT-Doc follows young students of a Gaza City music school who have lived through three major military conflicts since 2008.

Music school students prepare the end of year performance.

Their experiences of war unite them as much as their love of music.

They have survived the destruction, endured the horror of shelling and seen people die at first hand. 

Some have even come close to death themselves.

Powerless in the face of such violence, music gives them hope that one day the conflict will end. 

Despite their experiences, they remain hopeful that peace will eventually come.

Until then, they seek comfort in music.
