And I Was There


A random trance party in a living room is fairly common when it comes to young people. But what happens when the young people are Israeli soldiers, when the living room is owned by a Palestinian family that is locked up in one on the rooms of the house? 18 years after serving in the army, Eran Paz finds a box of videotapes with rare footage of himself and his squad mates, invading Palestinian homes in the Territories.

Now Eran sets out on a journey in the footsteps of the people, the memories and the places that inundate him and give him no peace.
