Synopsis
Short synopsis

An extraordinary investigation of the collective memory of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, stories of violent injustice recounted by witnesses and participants on both sides.

Long synopsis

Palestinian testimonies collected after the second Intifada revealed a harsh daily life reality that, for Israelis, had always belonged to the “others”- the Palestinians, and hence, were denied.

A few years later, trespassing what would be taboo until then, Israeli officers who served during the Intifada told their memories. Memories of violence, of suffering, of humiliation.

The stories from both sides match.

On the backdrop of local empty landscapes, an Israeli officer remembers… a Palestinian civilian remembers as well.  A journey into the collective memory of Palestine and Israel takes place.
