In By the Side of the Road, former West Bank settler Lia Tarachansky examines Israelis’ collective amnesia regarding the fateful events of 1948 when the State of Israel was born and most of the Palestinians within its borders became refugees. She interviews Israeli veterans and probes their denial of the war that changed the region forever. Tarachansky then turns the camera on herself and travels back to her settlement, where such historical erasure gave birth to a new generation blinded and isolated from its surroundings. Attempting to shed a light on the country’s most entrenched taboo, she is met with outrage and violence.(see
