The soldier’s opinion

by Assaf Banitt, Israel, 2022, 57'

Greek premiere

From 1948 onwards, the Military Censor had the authority to open all soldiers’ letters in order to prevent the disclosure of military secrets and protect national security. In practice, the Censor used the information in these letters for entirely different purposes, without the soldiers’ knowledge… The purpose was to analyze the views of ordinary soldiers, and the findings were presented to high-ranking officials in a top secret report titled “The Soldier’s Opinion”. The film sketches the alternative history of Israel that the report offers and reveals what actions those who read it chose to take.
