Israeli Film Festival 2021 - My War Hero Uncle

Directed by Shaked Goren
Documentary | 52 min | 2018

"I decided to start sending letters - until my long-awaited release". Ami wrote these words at the age of 18, before he was killed in the 1967 War. Through stories, Memorial Day ceremonies, and his letters, Ami was always a present absence for his nephew Shaked, the film's director. Following his grandmother's declining health, Shaked applies to the Defense Ministry for nursing care. His claim is rejected. Their refusal leaves him confused. Fifty years after Ami's death, a shocking truth is unveiled.
