Film: Pourquoi Israel
Claude Lanzmann, 190 min., 1972/73
Claude Lanzmann - His name is connected with the nine hour documentary "Shoah" (1985), where he questions contemporary witnesses about their memories of the Holocaust. "Pourquoi Isreal" is also a milestone in historical documentaries as it mixes staging and chance recordings and his stylized editing. Claude Lanzmanns film début Why Israel, made in 1971/72 and premiered in New York in 1973 on the day of the Jom-Kippur War escapes, is unquestionably one of the most remarkable documentaries about the State of Israel and its self-conception, its religious and political fundaments, and about all of its citizens. Without educational commentary, without any propaganda gesturing or coloring, but with much personal sympathy and humour, Lanzmann traces the achievements and contradictions of the Israeli nation. He presents a living panorama of Israel's diversity, its paradoxes, tensions, and its "normalcy".
