“Rabin, The Last Day” | National Center for Jewish Film’s Annual Festival

May 9, 2016 Waltham $12.00 - $14.00 0

NEW ENGLAND PREMIERE. On November 4, 1995, Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated at a political rally in Tel Aviv. The killer was a 25-year-old student and observant Jew. As acclaimed filmmaker Amos Gitai reveals in his provocative new film, the murder was the culmination of a climate of hate and paranoia fueled by the hysterical rhetoric and political intrigue of extremists who condemned Rabin by invoking an obscure Talmudic ruling and right-wing politicians who joined in the campaign of incitement. Winner of the Human Rights Film Network Award at the Venice Film Festival.
