The 2015 documentary Rabin, The Last Day movie shows the last of days Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and the events that led to his assassination in 1995.

rabin-the-last-day-1For many Israelis, the assassination of Rabin 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.

But, as filmmaker Amos Gitai sets out to prove in his provocative new film, Rabin’s assassination was not just the act of one fanatic; it was the culmination of a hate campaign that emanated from the rabbis and public figures of Israel’s far right.

The film is presented in Hebrew and English with English subtitles.
