DIRECTOR: SUSAN SONTAG

Susan Sontag’s only documentary, shot in the final days and immediate aftermath of the Yom Kippur War, scrutinizes the ongoing Arab-Israeli conflict and the growing divisions within Jewish thought over the question of Palestinian sovereignty. A filmic extension of Sontag’s eternal search for understanding and truth, always confident to upend conventional thought and rethink her own opinions.“ Using the Arab-Israel War as a metaphor for the human condition, Susan Sontag has made a strong, clear, intelligent film. It is unlike any film that I have seen.”

– Roberto Rossellini
