Many generations of Israelis were raised on the Masada binary: freedom vs. death. Nearly two thousand years after the Roman siege of Masada and its Jewish defenders’ mass suicide, the film, AVENGE BUT ONE OF MY TWO EYES seeks to examine the myth in question and its potentially relatable elements in modern-day Israel.

Or do we in fact recognise ourselves in the image of the Romans; ruthless occupiers of the Land of Israel?
