Ha’ayit

Fortnight 1981, Feature film,

Synopsis

The film attempts to expose the « Industry of Death » that lies behind Israel’s wars. The Israely censor decided to alter the film, claiming it was likely to offend those still alive. Israel is probably the country where war is the rule and not the exception; probably the only place in the world where dying is easier than staying alive. Yet it’s the most beautiful place to live. Yaky YOSHA
