Over the past decade, with conflict escalating throughout the Middle East, enterprising Israeli arms companies have grown exponentially on business generated by their homeland’s ongoing conflict with Palestine; they now rank among the biggest weapons manufacturers in the world, selling tools of destruction indiscriminately to countries and regimes around the globe. Israeli filmmaker Yotam Feldman interviews key players from the past and present of the arms industry, and their testimonies reveal chilling stories of weapons testing on Palestinian communities in the name of advancing military technology and profits. This brave documentary turns a critical lens on the lucrative business of war and occupation, which has become an indispensable part of Israel’s growing economy and political capital.
