JIFF – Incitement

2 hours 3 minutes | Rated R16

The Jewish International Film Festival 2021 comes to Alice! 22nd July – 4th August.

A psychological thriller, INCITEMENT follows the year leading to the assassination of Israel’s Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, from the point of view of the assassin. The film details, for the first time, the forces that act upon the assassin, including the religious and political incitement, the personal and the interpersonal turmoil. It is a psychological portrait of a political assassin seeking to kill democracy. It is also a portrait of a torn society on the brink of civil war.

Reviews:

Incitement is an extremely interesting film because of the story it tells, and is altogether watchable… Film Comment Magazine

An assassin’s actions can never be thoroughly explained, but this ragged, powerful film cogently indicts the dark, repressive voices in any society who can set the stage for violence. Hollywood Reporter

Admirably, Yaron Zilberman’s film focuses on the cyclical nature of violence in a decades-old conflict. Slant Magazine
