State of emergency


“State of emergency” is seven years in making independent documentary, made under the strict eye of the “IDF Home-land
security office" and the "IDF censorship office”, portraying a society preparing for an everlasting war.
I was given a never- before- access to film the mandatory educational programs, drills and activities that are the heart of the “culture of
preparedness” the state of Israel is promoting to its citizens.
A “propaganda film gone wrong” - "State of emergency" is a funny-tragic journey to the soul of Israel and the fear that is the glue of its society.
