30th Anniversary Screening! Amos Gitai in person!

In 1982, Amos Gitai took a small camera crew to the West Bank and started filming the day-to-day business of the Israeli occupation. The result was a landmark in Israeli cinema; Gitai has spoken about the film as portraying the end of the “myth of the good occupation”—the belief that, in the territories captured after the 1967 War, Israel would be a very different kind of occupying power; 15 years later, Gitai’s film shows the occupation in a very different light. Field Diary also introduced what would become Gitai’s signature style: the long, lateral tracking shots that, as Yann Lardeau noted in Cahiers du cinéma, “become a question of morality…we never enter into the reality of the war, but we always remain on the edge of the scene.” Gitai will be on hand to introduce and discuss Field Diary and its continuing relevance for Israel today.
