POURQUOI ISRAEL

(ISRAEL WHY)

Directed by : Claude LANZMANN

Year of production : 1973 Country : FRANCE Length : 207 minutes

Synopsis

This first film by the author of “Shoah, “Israel, Why” recounts, without Manichaeism, but with empathy, profundity, intelligence, humor, and humanity, the achievements and contradictions of the Israeli nation in the making. Through a series of scenes that often hilarious, Claude Lanzmann shows that, to the amazed and sometimes dazzled eyes of Diaspora Jews, the normality of a “State like any other” is, in fact, abnormality itself.
