About the Program
In this provocative political thriller copresented by the Ford Theatres and the Skirball, celebrated filmmaker Amos Gitai documents the November 1995 assassination of Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin.
Through staged re-enactments and archival news footage, Gitai illuminates the subculture of hate—fueled by hysterical rhetoric, paranoia, and political intrigue—that led to Rabin’s untimely death. This “never less than eerily absorbing” film, as lauded by the Independent, is a “must-see.” (2015, 156 min. No MPAA rating. Viewer discretion advised. In Hebrew with English subtitles.)
A Q&A with director Amos Gitai follows the screening.
