“An essential amendment to the historical record, Censored Voices reminds us that no war is entirely virtuous.”  – New York Times.

 

The 1967 Six-Day War saw Israel expand its boarders and reclaim the West Bank, Gaza and the Sinai Peninsula. Immediately after the conflict, the Israeli military recorded the thoughts and feelings of their soldiers, censored the tapes and published the sections with nationalistic sentiment. Almost 50 years later, Censored Voices delicately revisits the previously unreleased audiotapes and examines the soldier’s fresh reflections on war. Uncensored, insightful and human – this film unearths a powerful message of anti-war and peace. The Six-Day War may have occurred nearly half a century ago, but the reverberations of such events can still be clearly seen and felt today.

 

This film has been exempt from classification and is restricted to people over 18 years.
