Aftershock – Israeli Defense Force in the Occupied Territories

I found this video on Sabbah’s Blog.

This is a short (23 minutes) documentary of IDF soldiers in the Palestinian occupied territories. It’s directed by a former IDF paratrooper and follows the story of soldiers active during the first Intifada and some of the same soldiers now retired from service.

The documentary began as a military endorsed project, though it was scrapped by officials and was completed by Yariv Horowitz over a decade later.

From Yariv Horowitz’s website:

For the first time Israeli combat soldiers speak to the camera of their traumatic experiences in the first Intifada, revealing their deep moral and psychological scars left by their involvement in acts of extreme violence against the Palestinian population. The film combines explosive interviews with soldiers in Nablus in 1991 as well as their perpective ten years later.
