BEAUFORT

BACK

Director : Joseph Cedar

Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film 2008, BEAUFORT tells the true story of LIRAZ LIBERTI (Oshri Cohen), a barely-of-age Israeli outpost commander, and his troops, who are left to defend the mythological 12th Century Crusader fort of BEAUFORT prior to Israel’s withdrawal from Lebanon in 2000. Under a relentless aerial bombardment of Hezbollah rockets, Liraz's authority is challenged on both sides: by strained soldiers who increasingly become weary of their mission's purpose and uncooperative superiors. Rather than deliver a political commentary on the Middle East, BEAUFORT offers a rare insight into the human reality behind the tough exterior shell of the Israeli Defence Force.
