Directed by Mor Loushy
In June of 1967 Israel achieved a stunning victory over its Arab neighbors and spun a proud national narrative of manifest destiny. One week later, Amos Oz and Avraham Shapira recorded conversations with returning soldiers that revealed their concerns about the treatment of Arab prisoners, the forced evacuations of Palestinian villages, and the paradox of a people who had once fled oppression but now oppress others to preserve their security. It also reveals their still fervent hope for a lasting peace.
Partially censored at the time, these newly available recordings form the core of this probing film, along with rare footage and an evocative sound design that allow viewers to relive memories of this critical moment in Middle Eastern history.
**** Four stars! - The Guardian
"Poignant and provocative. Censored Voices unleashed a thoughtful, deeply moving moment in time. Unforgettable." - E. Nina Rothe, Huffington Post
"Absorbing. Expertly assembled across the board." - Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter
"In its raw detail, the material in Censored Voices is new and indispensable." - Stuart Klawans, The Nation
"A must see! Censored Voices' power comes from the fact it dismantles the myth of the Six Day War and illuminates how this war has shaped Israel's future." - Uri Klein, Ha'aretz
