One week after the 1967 Six Day War, a group of young Israeli soldiers, led by renowned Israeli author Amos Oz, recorded intimate conversations with their comrades returning from the battlefield. In these recordings, soldiers wrestled with the systemic evacuation of Palestinians, the dehumanizing nature of war, and the echoes of the Holocaust, taking an honest look at the moment Israel turned occupier. These recordings, censored by the Israeli army until now, are played back to the soldiers 50 years later, bringing past abruptly into present and revealing the soldiers’ stunning confessions for the first time.

A Cannes Film Festival favorite. A look into the lives of a diverse group of women as they visit a beauty salon in the Gaza Strip on a hot summer’s day. A bride-to-be, a pregnant woman, a bitter divorcée, a devout woman, and a pill-popping addict all meet for some leisure time and pampering. But their peace is disrupted when a gang war erupts between Hamas and a local group right in front of the salon. The women are trapped inside, while the heat and their anxiety rises. Dégradé stars Hiam Abbass, Maisa Abdelhadi, and Manal Awad.

Rabin in His Own Words
Winner, “Best Documentary” – Haifa International Film Festival 2015
20 years after his assassination, Yitzhak Rabin, one of Israel’s most legendary leaders, tells his dramatic life story. Through a combination of rare archival footage, home movies and private letters, Rabin’s personal and professional dramas and life story unfold entirely in his own voice. From his childhood as the son of a labor leader before the founding of the State of Israel, to the horrific moment when his political career and life were suddenly brought to an end. There is no better way to present the story of this legend than in his own words.
Please note: Rabin in His Own Words is not an Other Israel festival program. It cannot be redeemed with the Other Israel pass. However, it is eligible for redemption with the Fall Season Film Pass.
