"Well, men are only men. That's why they lie. They can't tell the truth, even to themselves." ( A quote from Rashômon-1950)
What to watch out for in times of fear…
On October 18, 2015, an armed man with a gun and a knife entered Beersheba's bus terminal. Within 18 minutes, Omri Levy, a soldier, was killed. This film presents a tense, minute-by-minute, Rashômon-style account of that tragic day. It tells the story of people caught in the wrong place at the wrong time, who experienced panic and fear. Their testimonies are incorporated into security camera footage to present a surprising and complex picture that dismantles the concept of "lynch", and challenges our ability to judge what happened during those fateful moments. This is what to watch out for in times of fear.
