One More Jump • Documentary
When Abdallah – founder of the Gaza Parkour Team – was invited to Europe, a few years ago, he decided not to return to Gaza. His friend and teammate Jehad still lives in the Strip. Every day he trains the youngest members of the team: only sport can keep their hopes alive… he too dreams of leaving Palestine. One day Abdallah decides that the time has come to join the main European parkour competition in Sweden, and to confront reality. In the same days, Jehad finally receives the visa he has been waiting years for... Can you ever be free if you must leave everything you love behind?
The second documentary feature from Italian filmmaker Emanuele Gerosa, ONE MORE JUMP had its premiere at the Rome Film Fest.
