The Chris Marker documentary Description of a Struggle (1960) was an impressionist outline of the situation of the modern state of Israel. A new documentary shot almost 50 years later confronts the conserved image with the current events, searches for the protagonists of the original film, returns to the same places, examines the transformation of the original state-spawning ideas. The director also revalidates Marker's original approach of a poetic, philosophizing documentary strongly relying on a poetic commentary. The man with the camera doesn't depend on images only but also speaks, he trusts words, too.
