Film: Censored Voices

Resistance Film Series of the Northampton Committee to Stop the Wars

2nd and 4th Wednesdays film series. Free and accessible. Discussion follows.

Censored Voices is an Israeli film drawn from censored audio tapes made within weeks of soldiers  returning from the 1967 Six Day War. The film project was the initiative of Israel's best known anti-war author and activist Amos Oz to be shown in advance of the current 70th anniversary of the Israeli state and the Palestinian Nakba. These men were appalled at what they were required to in the 1967 war and nearly 50 years later gather to discuss the tapes in a 2015 film made by Israeli filmmaker Mor Loushy complete with raw, real military footage.

Oz and his friends are seen a half-century later listening to those tapes of their younger selves  and discussing how they see the impact of that war on  current Israel/Palestine,  and the Occupation  of the West Bank and Gaza.

 

Free and accessible.

The Resistance Film series is co-sponsored by The Resistance Center of Western MA and the Northampton Committee to Stop the Wars.
