This 2007 Academy Award-nominated film takes place a few months prior to the total withdrawal of the Israeli Defence Force from Southern Lebanon in 2000, after 18 years of bitter conflict with Hezbollah combatants.

An IDF unit struggles to defend a 12th century Crusaders’ fort taken as an Israeli stronghold in 1982. As the unit’s 22-year-old commander, Liraz, lays the explosives to destroy the fort many men have died to protect, he reflects on the futility of this war without a cause. Directed by Joseph Cedar, and stars Oshri Cohen and Itay Tiran. (From Israel, in Hebrew, English subtitles)
