Our Beds Are Burning

The film presents fascist ideologies since the beginning of the 20th Century. The texts are delivered in relevant locations: The actor/presenter of Maurice Barrés argues against foreign labor on the Tel Aviv beach. Mussolini presents his ideas in a gym. Jose Antonio Primo de Rivera in a bookshop. Carl Schmitt at court. Abba Ahimeir and Itamar Ben-Avi in a Tel Aviv public library. Gudrun Streiter's recalls her love affair with an SA Stormtrooper with Hitler and Himmler on a bench in a park by the sea. Three Rabbis from Yitzhar Settlement on the West Bank have recently ruled that "there is a reason to kill a child if it is clear that it will grow to harm us" (Torat Hamelekh, 2009, pg. 207).
Archive films, photos and press-illustrations reproduce the times and the deeds of ideologues of the radical right.
