Former West Bank settler Lia Tarachansky looks at Israelis’ collective amnesia of the fateful events of 1948 when the state of Israel was born and most of the Palestinians became refugees. She follows the transformation of Israeli veterans trying to uncover their denial of the war that changed the region forever. Tarachansky then turns the camera on herself and travels back to her settlement where that historical erasure gave birth to a new generation, blind and isolated from its surroundings. Attempting to shed a light on the country’s biggest taboo, she is met with outrage and violence. Lia Tarachansky will be answering questions after the film screening. Donations will go towards funding Tarachansky's tour of the UK

About the director: Lia Tarachansky is the Israel/Palestine correspondent for The Real News Network. Born in the Soviet Union, Tarachansky immigrated to Israel at the age of six and grew up in Ariel, one of the largest Israeli colonies in the heart of the Palestinian West Bank. Later she moved to Canada where she completed her studies before returning to Israel/Palestine in 2009 to pursue her journalism and filmmaking. Her work is frequently featured in publications such as +972 Magazine, Mondoweiss, USA Today, Al Jazeera English, and others.
