Journalist Susan Sontag made this film as a photographic essay on the State of Israel and a recent war which took place there. In it, she meditates on the current (1974) situation of the country and its people and her feelings about Israel and its future. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Sontag's true talent was for the printed word; behind the camera, her limitations come more harshly to light."
‑ Keith Uhlich, Time Out New York
"...Sontag was enough of an artist to know that she was present in a crucible-moment, and that if she just pointed her camera in the right direction, history would do the rest."
‑ Chris Barsanti, Filmcritic.com
"The movie does not advertise its alliances, and Sontag's position is pretty thoroughly hidden in the folds of her imagery."
‑ Michael Atkinson, Village Voice
"...a reminder of a time when a noted writer and intellectual was willing to take the risk of working in a medium in which she had no training and minimal experience..."
‑ Sarah Boslaugh, Playback:stl
