New Israeli Cinema From Gaza and Sderot: War Matador
War Matador
Avner Faingulernt & Macabit Abramson, Israel, 2011, 70 min.
During the war in Gaza in January 2009, two courageous Israeli directors brought their cameras to shoot events, subjects, alternative perspectives and visuals of the war along the common border with Gaza. The bombing is filmed from a distance, out-of-focus, at arm's length, just as the visiting Israeli tourists viewed it. These visiting groups of spectators from different parts of Israel come to see the events of the war like the attendants of a bullfight. The muffled impacts of the bombs in the distance heighten attention to the spoken words of the tourists as well as the communities that live intimately with the violence of this area. The words heard are blunt, seemingly lacking all compassion. This film is a disturbing essay about war and tourism, an absurd and surreal relationship.
