In 1962, the world witnesses the execution of Adolf Eichmann in an emotional public trial.

This unique drama, shot on lush 16mm, offers a distinctive look at the events preceding Eichmann’s execution. Told in a triptych, the film follows 13-year-old Libyan immigrant David, who claims to have worked on the oven where Eichmann’s corpse was incinerated; Hayim, a Moroccan guard assigned to Eichmann’s jail cell; and Micha, a Polish Holocaust survivor who became the chief interrogator at the trial. The three are connected by the parts they played in this seminal moment of Jewish history; their perspectives offer a reminder of the dynamism of history, and a fascinating reflection on Israel’s makeup and identity post-WWII.

The premiere of the film took place at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival.
