2013 film by Lia Tarachansky, an Israeli filmmaker and former Israel/Palestine correspondent for The Real News Network (TRNN) where she produced short, documentary-style reports exploring the context behind the news.
Synopsis: Former West Bank settler Lia Tarachansky looks at Israelis’ collective amnesia of the fateful events of 1948 when the state of Israel was born and most of the Palestinians became refugees. She follows the transformation of Israeli veterans trying to uncover their denial of the war that changed the region forever. Tarachansky then turns the camera on herself and travels back to her settlement where that historical erasure gave birth to a new generation, blind and isolated from its surroundings. Attempting to shed a light on the country’s biggest taboo, she is met with outrage and violence. // Lia Tarachansky, Israel – Palestinian Territory, 2013, 82′ // Half of all proceeds from the rental of this video go directly to the artist, and half go to support the work of Cinema Politica.
