Six Days in June
Released May 6th 2007
A film by Ilan Ziv
Produced by Arik Bernstein, Ina Fichman and Luc Martin-Gousset
Although the fighting lasted only six days in June of 1967, the effects of the Six Day War are still apparent today. On its 40th anniversary, the region remains trapped in a conflict as explosive as it was then. For Israel, the 1967 war was a military success. But it also redrew the Middle East map and mired the region in a never-ending cycle of occupation, terrorism and reprisal. The Six Day War forever changed the politics of the Middle East by helping to destroy the secular basis of Pan-Arab nationalism and transform secular Zionism, cementing the fusion between nationalism and religion. It also gave rise to a Palestinian nationalist movement. Shot on location in Israel, Palestine, Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Moscow and Washington, Six Days in June takes us through the weeks that preceded the war, its six days of fighting and the aftermath that still lingers today.
