British distributor Dogwoof has picked up the worldwide rights to director Mor Loushy’s Censored Voices (pictured) ahead of the Israeli documentary’s world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival next month.

The film, which will screen in the world cinema documentary competition, is about a group of young kibbutzinks led by author Amos Oz and editor Avraham Shapira, who recorded conversations with soldiers returning home from the Six-Day War of 1967, which ended with Israel occupying Jerusalem, the Gaza Strip, the Sinai Peninsula and the West Bank.

According to the festival’s write-up, “the records revealed a candid look at the moment Israel turned from David to Goliath. The Israeli army censored the recordings, allowing the kibbutzninks to publish only a fragment of the conversations. Censored Voices reveals the original recordings for the first time.”

Censored Voices is a coproduction between kNow Productions and One Man Show. It was produced by Daniel Sivan, Hilla Medalia and Neta Zwebner; co-produced by Melanie Andernach; and exec produced by Dan Cogan, Guy Lavie, Dagmar Mielke, Nick Fraser, Morgan Spurlock, Jeremy Chilnick, and Ethan Goldman.
