Beyond the Fear: Controversial Docu on the Killer of Israeli Premier Yitzhak Rabin

The Jerusalem Film Fest recently sparked a storm of protests from the local film industry after pulling “Beyond the Fear,” a controversial documentary centering on Yigal Amir, the Jewish man who killed Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin in 1995.

The decision to not show “Beyond the Fear” was prompted by an ultimatum from Israel’s culture and sports minister Miri Regev, who reportedly threatened to revoke funding for the fest if the docu wasn’t removed.
