Rachel is a documentary investigation into the death of Rachel Corrie, an American pacifist who was crushed to death by an Israeli army bulldozer while she was protecting Palestinian homes from demolition in Gaza in 2003.
A riveting and remarkable film, Rachel, meticulously investigates the facts and presents the testimony of witnesses from all sides of the case: Palestinians, Rachel’s colleagues who witnessed her death, Israeli army officials and spokespersons, tank drivers, Palestinian and Israeli doctors who were involved in the case and Rachel’s parents.
Rachel Corrie was no ideologue. She was an idealistic and courageous human being whose activism on behalf of the people of Gaza was motivated by the injustices they endured. Her courage and the purity of her motives, as revealed in her diary entries and emails cited in the film, make her death all the more heartbreaking and intolerable. Absolutely essential viewing for anyone who wants to understand the true issues and dynamics of the Israel-Palestine crisis.
Directed by Simone Bitton.
