The film, supported by the Norwegian Film Institute, had its world premiere at the Sheffield Film Festival in June.

'A raw, first-person account of the last war in Gaza in the summer of 2014. From the very first day of the Israel-Gaza conflict in 2014, filmmaker Mohamed Jabaly was there with his camera. He follows a team of paramedics in an ambulance, eventually becoming a core member who bears witness to their perilous and heartbreaking rescue work. "Ambulance" tracks the harrowing chaos amidst a state-run military operation affecting civilians.'
