May 1948 : David Ben-Gurion proclaims the establishment of the State of Israel. For some, a dream becomes reality. For others, it’s the start of a catastrophe. This lm will recount the two first decades of the Hebrew state, from 1945 to the Six-Day War, as seen by both Israelis and Arabs. It will revisit the key moments of this chapter of the 20th century through the testimonies and interviews of direct eyewitnesses and historians from both sides, as well as newly discovered and remastered archives.
