The shooting lasted only six tense days in June 1967, but the Six Day War has never really ended. Every crisis that has ripped through this region in the ensuing decades had its roots in these fateful days. 50 years later,the region remains trapped in conflict.
This two-part documentary, shot in Israel, Egypt, Jordan and Syria, offers an impressive array of archives and an extraordinary amount of new testimonies from a variety of sources, from ordinary soldiers to generals, from politicians to secret service agents.
Part One leads us onto the march to war, whereas Part Two concentrates on the war itself. In an in-depth analysis of history, the film offers a greater understanding of the key issues at stake in the Middle East.
