On the fortieth anniversary of the Six Day War, filmmaker Ilan Ziv travels back in time to explore the events leading up to the deceptively abbreviated conflict, as well as the manner in which it forever altered the course of history in the Middle East. Though the exchange of gunfire only lasted for a mere one-hundred-and-forty-four hours, some historians would argue that the Six Day War is still being fought at the dawn of the 21st Century. Now history buffs looking to gain a new perspective on this compelling subject can explore the events leading up to the Six Day War as director Ziv begins by studying the decisive actions of Israeli Prime Minister Levi Eshkol and Egyptian President Jamal Adel Nasser, moves on to the actual conflict, and then shifts focus to the war with Jordan, the occupation of the West Bank, and the subsequent unification of Jerusalem. By speaking directly with soldiers on both sides, Ziv attempts to reveal how the Six Day War reshaped the political landscape of the Middle East while simultaneously obliterating the old ways and clearing the path for new, more powerful forces to emerge. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
