The assassination of Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin on November 4, 1995, as he left a peace rally in support of the Oslo Accords plunged the country into mourning.
That the gunman was a 25-year old Israeli opposed to the peace accords and whose aggression was encouraged by the rhetoric of homegrown Israeli groups further complicated the event's fallout.
Rabin: Shivah in November documents the assassination's aftermath as it occurred, recording the chaos surrounding the shooting, the spontaneous acts of public mourning and the various political and personal responses of Israel's leaders and citizens.
Produced by veteran Israeli filmmaker Noemi Schory (A Film Unfinished), the film is constructed entirely from contemporaneous television coverage aired in the seven days following the murder. The result is a mosaic--part memorial, part time capsule--allowing viewers to experience the events much as Israelis saw them, through the television screen.
Bookending the film are the events that played out in Tel Aviv's Malkei Israel (Kings of Israel) Square, beginning with the largest-ever Israeli peace rally that concluded with Rabin's assassination and the memorial vigil held there a week later when the plaza was renamed Rabin Square. In the seven days in between, the country grieved, the Rabin family shared their private memories, and world leaders from more than eighty countries paid their respects at the prime minister's funeral.
