Born in Deir Yassin

Directed by Neta Shoshani
France, Israel / 2018 / 63mins / DC Premiere

The film tells the story of Deir Yassin, the Arab village conquered in a highly controversial and pivotal battle in 1948, and turned into the government-owned psychiatric hospital in 1951. Today, there is no access to Deir Yassin or to the classified photographs locked away in the archives of the Israel Defense Forces. It is a stain on Israel’s past, that no one likes to talk about or acknowledge. The film discloses the Israeli narrative of Deir Yassin, resulting in a mass exodus of Arab residents which was considered the beginning of the Palestinian refugee problem
