Z32 is built around a confession- a young man's account of his participation in the revenge killing of two Palestinian police officers by the Israeli army in the occupied territories. Around the soldier's account Mograbi interweaves a couple's extended and often agonizing discussion of their relationship, punctuated by Mograbi himself characteristically addressing the camera. Adding further layers of complexity are the use of a digital "mask," both to disguise the young soldier's identity and foreground the politics of the camera as witness, and Mograbi's radical decision to perform his own musings as Brechtian songs, set to Weill-ian music. The radical elements of Mograbi's project combine to raise painful and unsettling questions about responsibility, forgiveness and the shape of cinematic truth.
Arnon Degani is a PhD student in the History Department, served in the IDF between 2000-2003 and active in the veteran organization Breaking the Silence since 2004.
