A short video combining segments from two earlier works by Mograbi: August & Detail 4.  It begins with former Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu giving a famous political speech in which he repeats over and over again in Hebrew: “They are afraid; they are afraid.” These words are a chilling symbol of what is rotten in the state of Israel as daringly explored in Israeli filmmaker Avi Mograbi’s August.
 
The movie follows random events in August 2001, when Israel was “filled with anger, frustration and fear.” It is a raw, glaring, yet also absurdly humorous look at the Israeli populace as they let their anti-Arab sentiments unwittingly froth in front of the unapologetic camera.
Mograbi splices this with footage of auditions he hosted for Israeli actresses to play Miriam Goldstein, the wife of Baruch Goldstein who committed a horrible massacre against Arabs and Muslims in Hebron in 1994.
