Acclaimed filmmaker Amos Gitai blends the words of Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin’s widow, Leah, with live music and projected imagery to yield this intimate theatrical counterpoint to his 2015 investigative film, Rabin, the Last Day.


Seated at either end of a table, two Israeli actresses read from Leah’s memoirs. Together, they travel back through time to explore the violence that led to Rabin’s assassination, traumatizing a country and sending shockwaves across the world. Premiered at the Festival d’Avignon last summer, the piece exists between an elegy and a lullaby, a poetic fable "reconstructing the past and renewing the conscience of humanity” (Inferno Magazine).

A beautiful moment of reconstruction and communion.
