Originally produced as a motion picture in 1974.
Includes original liner notes by film critic Ed halter; rediscovered 1975 essay by Sontag on the making of the film originally published in Vogue Magazine; collectable 2010 theatrical re-release poster art by artist Paul Chan.
Famed writer and critic Susan Sontag's sole documentary project, shot in Israel on the fly in the final days and immediate aftermath of the 1973 Yom Kippur War. Not only does the film scrutinize the ongoing Arab-Israeli conflict, it also brilliantly underscores the deepening divisions within the Jewish thought over the very question of Palestinian sovereignty. Banned by Israeli authorities upon its initial release, it's a visually visceral portrait of a land torn apart.
