On the evening of Saturday, November 4, 1995, Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin is shot down at the end of a huge political rally in the center of Tel-Aviv. His killer apprehended at the scene turns out to be a 25-year-old Jewish observant. Investigation into this brutal murder reveals a dark and frightening world that made this tragic deed possible. This tribute to Nobel Peace Prize winner Yitzhak Rabin on the 20th anniversary of his death sheds light on an ever-growing crisis of hate in Israeli society today. Amos Gitai masterfully combines staged re-enactments with actual news footage of the shooting and its aftermath to create a thought-provoking political thriller.

In the presence of Amos Gitai.
