Festival year: 2010
Members of the International Solidarity Movement, of which Rachel was a part, read extracts from her diaries. Bitton spent three years making the film. It was not easy for her on the one hand to convince Rachel’s family of her goodwill and on the other to get the representative of the Israeli army to speak – but she manages both. As part of the programme A Matter of ACT, the festival shows the film 'To Shoot an Elephant', made by Alberto Arce in co-operation with International Solidarity Movement. International Solidarity Movement is nominated for the Golden Butterfly Award for most impressive human rights activist or organization.
