Simcha Jacobovici

Deadly Currents

Edition 1992
115' - 1991 - Documentary - Dialogue: Arabic, Hebrew, English
Director: Simcha Jacobovici Composer: Stephen Price With: Hanan Ashrawi, Nurit Galron, Michael Greenspan
Both parties are represented in Simcha Jacobovici's portrayal of the lsraeli­-Palestinian conflict. For the first time ever, a director from the West was allowed to interview 'Rabah', a leading organizer of the Intifada and one of the most wanted men in lsrael for the last five years. The filmmakers were also allowed to be present during the interrogation of a Palestinian
collaborator. The film is less concerned to portray current events, but concentrates instead on the fundamental currents which lie beneath these events.
