Synopsis

INNOCENCE tackles the issue of militarization and its impact on the lives of young Israeli people who are forced to serve against their own identity and values. Through a narration based on the haunting diaries of soldiers who died in uniform and rare home video they left behind; the film depicts their inner turmoil. Interweaved together with first-hand training videos and unique filmed life moments; the film shows how children and young people are being tracked and pressured step by step from early childhood into military enrolment and away from their parents. INNOCENCE warns of the social and personal costs of increasing global militarization.

Biography

Born in Jaffa, acclaimed Israeli filmmaker Guy Davidi, has been making films since a young age. After evading the Israeli army Davidi started to make films focusing on highly charged political issues with a deeply emotional tone and an innovative approach. His most known film 5 BROKEN CAMERAS, co-directed with Palestinian Emad Burnat, was nominated to the Oscar in 2012 and won an Emmy for Best Documentary in 2013. The film has since been considered as an astounding achievement of the Palestinian-Israeli peace movement. His new film INNOCENCE, based on 10 years of research, is an epic portrait of his own disturbed country.
