An elite soldier of the Israeli army reveals in front of the camera that he murdered Palestinians in a retaliatory operation executed by his commando. What to do and how to deal with this knowledge? By now, director Avi Mograbi has some routine in dealing with the experience of “getting quick applause from the wrong side”. In consequence, he sees his work as fundamentally controversial.
