Trailer: Israel Turns 70

But that very night, the new country came under attack from Arab states in a bid to reverse this proclamation. The Arab-Israeli conflict remains unresolved to this day, while on the other hand, the development of the State of Israel has been a success story. A once predominantly agricultural country has become a leading high-tech nation – a tumultuous story that’s been critically observed by literature and the arts.

Documentary: The Returnees
 
What Jewish Israelis celebrate as their declaration of independence, the Palestinians call “Nakba” – the catastrophe. After the 1948 Arab-Israeli war, hundreds of thousands of Palestinians were forced to leave their towns and villages. Those displaced include the former residents of Iqrit in Galilee, a village that hasn’t existed for decades – but the yearning for homes lost remains as vivid as ever.

Documentary: A Moment of Optimism

In 1994, the Israeli filmmaker Amos Gitai decided to document what was happening behind the scenes during peace negotiations between Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and Palestinian leader Yassir Arafat. At the time, peace appeared to be within their grasp. But the assassination of Rabin in 1995 left that dream in tatters. More than 20 years later, Amos Gitai is keen to find out what’s left of that moment of optimism.
