Sharon


Documentary
Documentary

Who was Ariel Sharon? How did the historic decision which lead to the eviction of settlers in Gaza and Samaria come about – thus clearing the path to a possible peace agreement? The film is classical tragedy and didactic play at the same time – emotional but not lacking the appropriate distance to the protagonist.

Sharon
A Film by: Dror Moreh
(Israel, 2007, 90 Minutes, Color, Hebrew, English subtitles)

In December 2003 Prime Minister Ariel Sharon publicly announced the Disengagement Plan. Against acrimonious resistance from his own ranks he ordered 21 Jewish settlements to be razed to the ground.

Moreh’s film is not explicitly political yet it allows an insight into Israeli politics and the motivation inciting them. The film is classical tragedy and didactic play at the same time – emotional but not lacking the appropriate distance to the protagonist. This is a film which reaches far beyond the pattern of perpetrator and victim that has haunted the Middle East Conflict from the beginning.
