Following the Six Days War, Israel became three times larger and gained access to its historical capitol. The government’s narrative was one of positivity and pride but not everyone agreed – including many who fought the battles.
A week after the war concluded, two men – Amos Oz (soon to be a celebrated author) and editor Avraham Shapira – recorded conversations with many of the returning soldiers about their experiences. These conversations were very candid – but the Israeli Defense Force censored them.
Censored Voices records several of those soldiers listening to their original conversations and juxtaposes these moments with newsreel footage of the conflict.
Censored Voices comes to home video (DVD and VOD), Check out the trailer after the break.
Rolling Stone’s Peter Travers says Noomi Rapace should receive an Oscar® nomination for her work in the trilogy of films based on Stieg Larsson’s novels. Roger Ebert says, ‘Lisbeth is as compelling as any heroine in recent memory.’ The Wall Street Journal’s Joe Morganstern adds, ‘Noomi Rapace has a singular combination of eerie beauty and feral intensity. She’s a movie star unlike any other.’
On January 25th, 2011, Music Box Films Home Entertainment will release The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest on DVD and Blu-ray. The film, which is the final instalment of the critically acclaimed trilogy of Swedish films starring Rapace and based on Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy [The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played With Fire and Hornet’s Nest] will also be part of the company’s Stieg Larsson’s Dragon Tattoo Trilogy box set, to be released at the same time.
