Synopsis: Flying Paper is the uplifting story of Palestinian children in Gaza engaged in the fascinating culture of kite making and flying as a from of creative resistance. The film follows Musa, a charismatic teenaged kite-maker in the village of Seifa, and Abeer an aspiring young journalist in the Jabalya refugee camp. They join a remarkable quest, along with thousands of other children, to shatter the Guinness World Record for the most kites ever flown.

This unique documentary includes animation and hand-held footage shot by youth in Gaza trained by the filmmakers.
