State of Emergency

State of Emergency

In Israel, one learns at a young age of the country’s constant “state of emergency”. The education system in collaboration with the “Homefront Command Office” are dedicated to inserting that notion into the public’s mind. The film follows a class of fifth-graders in their mandatory course on “Home-Command Education” while at the same time follows the adult world, where through an on-going series of drills and simulations they prepare for the next war to come.
What began as a state-wide program for promoting a “culture of preparedness” to the public, evolved to an everlasting coming-of-age ceremony.
A funny/tragic view on life in Israel, and adulthood in the shadow of the conflict.
