Rachel - A film by Simone Bitton
Friday, October 8th 2010  Various times
New York City, NY


« Simone Bitton again proves that she is one of the finest contemporary documentarians. As in Wall (2004), which probes the concrete barrier the Israeli government erected between its citizens and Palestinians, she applies a light, almost lyrical touch to a politically charged issue. »
Howard Feinstein, SCREENDAILY

RACHEL is a startlingly rigorous, fascinating, and deeply moving investigatory documentary that examines the death of peace activist and International Solidarity Movement (ISM) member Rachel Corrie, who was crushed by an Israeli army bulldozer in the Gaza Strip in 2003. About this in-depth cinematic dispassionate but devastating essay, award-winning documentary filmmaker Simone Bitton (WALL), who is a citizen of both France and Israel, says: “My investigation into the death of this unknown young girl was done with the rigor and scope normally reserved for first-rate historical characters. I gathered precise testimonies, written documents, still photos and video footage relative to Rachel’s killing, and all these elements are interwoven in the film with no narration. RACHEL is transcending its subject, allowing the viewer to meditate and mourn about youth, idealism and commitment, about power and oppression, about truth and lies. Not only in Palestine, but anywhere on earth.”
