The combination of image manipulation and suggestive music turns journalistic footage of an extreme encounter between a young woman and a group of soldiers into a scene from a dramatic story. If the soldiers weren’t aiming their weapons at her, the choice of shots and the scene’s mood could almost be called romantic. The young woman wants to keep the soldiers from shooting at a group of protesting villagers. The Israeli-born director offers another critical look at the way the media portray the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
