RABIN: SHIVAH IN NOVEMBER

Shortly after the assassination, this powerful documentary was completed and broadcast, constructed entirely from footage of the television coverage that aired in the seven days following Rabin’s death. The filmmakers have just recently finished creating an updated version that is still, like the original, a mosaic of images, thoughts and emotions--part a memorial and part a time capsule.  Viewers are able to experience the events much as Israelis saw them, through the television screen.  Israel, 2010/1995, video, documentary, video, 62 minutes, Hebrew with English subtitles.
