MY NAME IS RACHEL CORRIE based on the diaries of Rachel Corrie and edited by Alan Rickman and Katherine Viner
Placing herself between an Israeli Forces bulldozer and a Palestinian home marked for demolition Rachel Corrie had faith that humanity could overcome the conflict in Gaza. She lived... and died for this belief. She was 23 years old.
Capturing the hope, idealism, wit and depth of Rachel’s moving journal entries.
Rachel Corrie was an American College student and member of the International Solidarity Movement (ISM) who travelled as an activist to the Gaza Strip during 2003. She was killed while attempting to prevent an Israel Defence Forces (IDF) bulldozer from demolishing a home in a Palestinian residential area near the Egyptian border. The details of the events surrounding Corrie's death are disputed. While an Israeli military investigation ruled the death was an accident, Corries' parents and the ISM maintain that Corrie was run over deliberately.
