Incitement Screening at Wesleyan Israeli Film Festival

Wesleyan Israeli Film Festival presents its closing film: Incitement by Yaron Zilberman

The 13th Wesleyan Israeli Film Festival presents its closing film: Incitement by writer-director Yaron Zilberman and co-writer Ron Leshem.

In 1995, Yitzhak Rabin, the Prime Minister of Israel, was assassinated by an ultranationalist, right-wing Zionist who opposed the leader’s signing of the Oslo Accords. Rabin’s murder is a definitive historical event, which has never been depicted in a feature film, until now. Israeli-American filmmaker Yaron Zilberman sets out, with a rigorous, exacting gaze, to expose—through the eyes of Rabin’s assassin, Yigal Amir—the motivations that led to Rabin’s death. Set in the year leading up to the incident, Zilberman’s meticulously crafted period piece is embedded in Amir’s world, moving from his family home to his failed relationships, and finally to his radicalization due to radical interpretation of Rabbinic law.
