Abstract

This Oscar-nominated documentary explores the role of Shin Bet, the Israeli internal security force, and its role in shaping Israel's history since the Six-Day War. Interviews with six former directors, archival footage, and animated sequences shed light on controversial topics like the occupation of Palestine, the assassination of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, and terrorism committed by Israelis. Constant conflict and war between Israel and Palestine, the filmmaker argues, was a product of a lack of long-term strategy.
