Avi Mograbi (1956), este unul dintre putinii regizori de filme documentare din Israel, care analizeaza dintr-o pozitie critica miturile si credintele societatii israeliene, in special in cazul conflictelor cu Palestina. In ultimul sau film “Avenge but One of My Two Eyes“, dezbate posibilitatea sinuciderii in miturile si istoria Iudaismului. Practic, filmul prezinta o paralela tragica intre eroii din miturile iudaice, ce prefera sa se sinucida decat sa se predea si palestinienii care fac atentate sinucigase.
Proiectia va fi precedata de o scurta prezentare a filmografiei lui Avi Mograbi.

 

ENGLISH VERSION 

Avi Mograbi (1956), is one of a few Israeli documentary filmmakers, who critically confronts with the myths and believes of the Israeli society, especially in regard to the Israeli- Palestinian conflict. In his latest film, ‘Avenge but One of My Two Eyes’ deepens into a politically charged reflection on suicide in Jewish myth and history. This documentary lets the tragic parallels between Jewish mythical heroes who kill themselves rather than surrender and Palestinian suicide bombers speak for themselves. Along the way, it questions the value of using history and myth to stir up nationalist fervor.
The screening will be accompanied by a brief introduction on Avi Mograbi’s filmography.
