:Death in a Terminal
Israel, 2016, 52 min
On October 18, 2015, a terrorist armed with a gun and a knife entered Beersheba’s bus terminal. Within 18 minutes, Omri Levy, a soldier, was killed, and Abtum Zarhum, an Eritrean asylum seeker, was lynched after being mistaken for a terrorist. This film presents a tense, minute-by-minute, Rashomon-style account of that tragic day. It tells the story of people caught in the wrong place at the wrong time, who experienced panic and fear, and challenges our ability to judge what happened during those fateful moments.
