Incitement (2019)


Dir. Yaron Zilberman | Israel | History, Thriller | 123 mins | Hebrew with English subtitles  25 years may have passed since the assassination of then Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, but the sociopolitical reverberations of the act are still felt today in the Middle East. In Yaron Zilberman’s riveting thriller, the events leading up to the murder are told, not without controversy, from the perspective of the assassin, Yigal Amir, who is still serving life imprisonment. Unsettlement creeps in as extremist worldviews become seemingly routine—the divide between emotion and logic becomes scarily blurred from the perspective of Amir. Interweaving harrowing news footage with dramatised reenactments that recall the best works of Costa-Gavras, Incitement boldly draws parallels between past and present in its treatment of a politics of hate.  Awards: Winner – Best Film & Best Casting (Awards of the Israeli Film Academy) Official Selection (Toronto International Film Festival)    Films are available for purchase from 30 September 2020, 12:00P.M. to 1 November 2020, 7:00P.M.
