A Parkour Team Offers A Guided Tour Inside The Walls Of Gaza
Mar 25, 2015
In response, the Gaza parkour team created their own video with music by Shadia Mansour, Palestine's best-selling female hip-hop artist. These men show what life is really like inside the walls and what they dream is beyond them.
Parkour and freerunning are activities with no real rules. Both are done in urban settings and are an attempt to get from point A to B in the fastest way possible. The difference between the two is that freerunning includes tricks, whereas parkour is more about speed and overcoming obstacles in one's path.
Back in February, the famous English graffiti artist Banksy went on a trip to Gaza and released several new works, including a mini-documentary. This was not his first trip to this part of the world, where no one is allowed to enter or leave. Having to enter via illegal tunnels, Banksy shed light on the conditions of the area, but not as accurately as some may have wanted.
