 Takes on the World 
 Dr. Eyad Sarraj, late Palestinian psychiatrist in 2004

In this never before aired conversation, recorded in Gaza City in 2004, the last year of the 2nd Intifada and the year before Israel's “withdrawal” of its Jewish settlers and its occupying army, the well respected Palestinian psychiatrist, Dr. Eyad Serraj, who died in 2013, speaks about the traumatic effects that the years of Israeli military occupation have had on the people of Gaza and how it has damaged/affected every aspect of their lives; how boys view their fathers and how it influences their actions, the differences in how boys and girls react to the conflict, what it does to marriages, to the situation and possibilities of women; how people go back and forth from hopelessness to hope, the appeal of martyrdom and much more.

Dr. Sarraj pulled no punches in that conversation nor did he hold back his criticism of his old friend Yasser Arafat who had him arrested three times and beaten for publicly criticizing the torture being carried out in Palestinian Authority prisons which he would come to experience himself.
