Entertainment Reviews:

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."

Product Description:

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.
