Product Description

Shot in the Occupied Territories by renowned Israeli filmmaker Avi Mograbi, this controversial documentary draws a parallel between the Israeli - Palestinian situation today and the myths of Samson and Masada. Mograbi makes provocative comparisons between Israeli's deep-rooted identification with these stories and contemporary Palestinian suicide bombers. He offers a powerful, at times chilling, lament to the continuing cycles of violence, rooted in the past but threatening to completely engulf everyone's future. A believer in the power of dialogue, Mograbi is passionate in his desire to see an end to the bloodshed.

With the roots of so much real-world conflict left unexamined by today's restless media, this film reminds us just how vital filmmakers like Avi Mograbi are. Documentary today is rarely immersed in questions of this magnitude - or tackles them with the level of eloquence shown here by Mograbi. Avenge but One of My Two Eyes is an exceptional and challenging film, a rare event in contemporary cinema.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By technoguy VINE VOICE on 2 Nov. 2009
Format: DVD
The roots of Israeli myth and history are explored as legends of revenge or defiance for Jews as an occupied people in history.How did it feel to be a Zealot and what were their options,what would you do?Samson was deceived and betrayed by Delilah on behalf of the Philistines,was weakened and blinded and mocked but became a hero.The sayings of both legends are pored over by Jewish tourists and schoolchildren and the film's title is celebrated by a right-wing minority settler group substituting the word'Palestinians' for `Philistines'.This film by Avi Mograbi is angry and polemical and is made in 26 scenes as a documentary exploring the indifference, racism and callousness of ordinary Israeli Jews ,who in celebrating their own legends,heroes and oppression are morally blind to the effects of occupation (enslavement) on Palestinians.The idea of the chosen people dies hard.It's noted that both legends committed suicide,one to escape surrender,one to destroy their captors.Children are asked the meaning of `Let me die with the Philistines'.The director shows his phone discussions with a Palestinian friend and commiserates with the other man's plight(voice disguised to protect him) while also being able to hold out the hand of equality but is wise enough to say to his friend Israeli society cannot be changed by force.The Palestinian says he has to be careful he doesn't look like a terrorist with 2 days growth.The worst scenes are those at military checkpoints: stopping farmers from tending to their olive crops,refusing to say what time they'll open the gates or what time to come back,stopping schoolchildren and refusing to open the gates so they can return home,turning a family away who want to get an ambulance.Read more ›
