My first War

  • Israel
Audio Tracks 

At the age of 28, I was drafted as a soldier in the Second Lebanon War. Instinctively, I grabbed my video camera. The movie recalls the lack of justice in this unnecessary war and the loss of valuable lives. This was my personal earthquake and the nation's as a whole.
