Atlanta Jewish Film Festival – Tantura

February 15, 2023 Atlanta $16.00

Tackling a taboo counter-mythology about the 1948 War of Independence, this eye-opening exposé revisits long-buried evidence of Israeli war crimes and a subsequent cover up. In hours of graphic testimony, witnesses on both sides recall the alleged massacre of hundreds of Palestinian civilians in the fishing village of Tantura by an Israeli army brigade. The recordings underpinned a landmark 1990s master’s thesis by historian Teddy Katz, subsequently discredited by Israeli press and government authorities. Decades later, filmmaker Alon Schwarz reopens the inquiry, examining why nations struggle to reconcile the sins of the past. Winner of the DocAviv Film Festival Research Award, Israeli Academy Award Best Documentary, and Sundance Grand Jury Prize nominee.
