slaves of Memory
A film by Eyal Sivan
Documentary | 1990 | 97mn | B/W | 4:3 | OVST

Izkor means "remember" in Hebrew and this film looks in depth at this imperative that is imposed on the children of Israel. In Israel during the month of April feast days and celebrations take place one after another. School children of all ages prepare to pay tribute to their country's past. The collective memory becomes a terribly efficient tool for the training of young minds. Izkor, is a portrait of the Israeli society that has never been shown before, thirty days in the life of a state that lives to the rhythm of its memory. This award-winning film puts forward a passionate and severe analysis of the Hebrew state.


A film on memory and politics:this is the way that Israeli society exploits its myths
to train hard people without doubts or remorse,the soldiers of the future wars.”
-Tom Segev (author of The Seventh Million) Haaretz
