Description of a Struggle

Description d'un combat

Directed by Chris Marker
Israel, 1960


In Description d’un Combat, Marker’s idiosyncratic style, combining location footage with archival material, builds a complex and personal portrayal. Israel’s demography is explored, from the kibbutzim to the Arab minorities, the orthodox Jews, and the tourists.
