Yair Agmon deals with the incident in which a grenade was thrown during the peace rally of 1983. The grenade, thrown by Yona Avrushmi, killed Emil Grunzweig and was a moment that was burned into the Israeli public psyche as a seminal low point of the social rift in the country. At first glance the work seems to adhere to all the standard rules of documentary formats and journalistic investigations. However, as the story progresses cracks appear in both format and content. The personal memory of figures clashes with historical facts, and the investigation does not conclude with one definitive final solution, as required by the genre. Even the “local” viewers discover that their own memories are interspersed with fallacies stemming from the public recollection of the event. Thus, the work examines the power of historical representations and the morality of its reporting.
