Film Comment - 01/01/2011
"Shot in the immediate aftermath of the 1973 October War....Sontag's presentation, neither shrill nor pandering, is contemplative and vivid in its analysis of Arab-Israeli relations..."
Sight and Sound - 05/01/2011
"[Sontag] lets her imagery do the talking, from the crowds praying at the Wailing Wall to the remnants of the war itself....It's indispensable to the Sontag legacy."
Journalist Susan Sontag made this film as a photographic essay on the State of Israel and a recent war which took place there. In it, she meditates on the current (1974) situation of the country and its people and her feelings about Israel and its future.
