Synopsis

Every night, hundreds of IDF soldiers go on dozens of arrest missions in Palestinian villages in the West Bank. This film gives its viewers a one-time peek into this ‘routine’ IDF fundamental experience, where manliness and shame, strength and weakness, lowliness and power, combine. In doing so, the film tells a tale, both realistic and surreal of this place.

Director’s Statement

Battle Hymn is an attempt to focus on the experience the conflict creates, to touch a bit of its complexity, and depict the toll it takes. I believe an intimate, dramatic and experiential peak such as this–into the heart of the conflict–can allow a beginning of a new political discourse. And this prayer of mine, for a new reality filled dialogue, partnership, and compassion–is also the closing scene of this film.
