Rabin, The Last Day (Rabin, Ha'Yom Ha'Akharon)

Rabin, The Last Day


“...a meticulously observant portrait of a broken society.” – Roger Ebert



For many Israelis, the assassination of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin in 1995 marked a grim turning point for their country. In the words of the commission set up to investigate the murder, “Israeli society [would] never be the same again. As a democracy, political assassination was not part of our culture.” In the eyes of even more people, the murder ended all hope for the Israeli-Palestinian peace process through the Oslo Accords and altered the course of history. In his brave and provocative new film, Amos Gitaï poses the question: was Rabin's assassination the act of one fanatic, or was it was the culmination of a hate campaign that emanated from the rabbis and public figures of Israel's far right?


Renowned Israeli director Amos Gitaï (Kippur) delves into the prelude and aftermath of Rabin’s assassination, questioning the institutional response that followed, and the collective psyche of a divided Israel. Winner of Human Rights Film Network Award at Venice Film Festival.
