The 1967 'Six-Day' war ended with Israel's decisive victory; conquering Jerusalem, Gaza, Sinai and the West Bank. It is a war portrayed, to this day, as a righteous undertaking - a radiant emblem of Jewish pride. One week after the war, a group of young kibbutzniks, led by renowned author Amos Oz, recorded intimate conversations with soldiers returning from the battlefield. The recording revealed an honest look at the moment Israel turned from David to Goliath. The Israeli army censored the recordings, allowing the kibbutzniks to publish only a fragment of the conversations. 'Censored Voices' reveals the original recordings for the first time.

Censored Voices movie full length review - Not bad, but I wanted more

CENSORED VOICES: THE SIX DAY WAR is an exploration of the infamous war between Israel on one side and the combined forces of Jordan, Lebanon, and Egypt on the other.

It's told entirely through the voices and experiences of young Israeli soldiers who recount their experiences on the battlefield and their disillusionment with war.

Bizarrely, their dissenting voices were initially censored by military authorities, only to be recounted in the present day. They're engaging as are all war stories told from the first person, although not quite as shocking as I was expecting; we all know that war is a violent and brutal act in which innocent people die and ordinary people do terrible things. Unfortunately, it's par for the course.

I had virtually no knowledge of the conflict before this documentary so it was very informative in that respect, but I ended up wanting more. More explanation of the theatre of battle, how the war started, and the subsequent consequences. Limiting the narration to that of the soldiers themselves limits the scope of the documentary itself. The contemporary footage is excellent, but bringing the soldiers back as old men to have them sitting silently and listening to the tapes is a bit of an odd choice, at least to me.
