This is Mograbi’s darkest film. Two abiding myths of Israel, both of which glorify death, are set against the Palestinians’ “culture of death” – a comparison that reveals striking similarities. The director illustrates this, shedding light on both without taking sides. Instead, he merges daily events with discussions about the contemporary meaning of these myths.
