Censored Voices by Mor Loushy (Israel/Germany, 2015, 84 min.). In 1967, the Six-Day War ended with Israel’s decisive victory, conquering Jerusalem, Gaza, Sinai, and the West Bank. It is a war portrayed to this day as a righteous undertaking—a radiant emblem of Jewish pride. One week after the war, a group of young kibbutzniks, led by renowned author Amos Oz, recorded intimate conversations with soldiers returning from the battlefield. The recordings revealed an honest look at the moment Israel turned from David to Goliath. The Israeli Army censored the recordings, allowing the kibbutzniks to publish only a fragment of the conversations. Censored Voices reveals the original recordings for the first time.
