Rabin, The Last Day

Amos gitai

1/3

Synopsis

November 4th, 1995. Yitzhak Rabin, Israeli Prime Minister, the man of Oslo Accords and Nobel Peace Prize, is murdered on the square of Kings of Israel in Tel Aviv after a long speech against the violence and for the peace. His murderer: an extreme right-wing religious Jewish student. Twenty years later, the film-maker Amos Gitaï returns on this event traumatizing with a new lighting. Replacing the murder in its political and societal context, the last day of Yitzhak Rabin mixes fictitious reconstructions and archives images to offer a real political thriller.
