Six Days is an efficient History Channel-type day-by-day documentation of the 1967 war between Israel and its Arab neighbors. Its thesis: the roots of what The Daily Show sarcastically calls Mess O’Potamia come out of the nationalist passions this conflict let loose.
Styled in an as-it-is-happening mode, direct participants or witnesses are interviewed, quoted, or their experiences reconstructed, described by political, military, and diplomatic observers, as well as pilots, soldiers, and front row journalists. The focus evenhandedly moves from Cairo to Tel Aviv, back and forth, with asides to Moscow, Washington, DC, Amman, Damascus, and the United Nations.
Produced in cooperation with television networks in Australia, Canada, France, Israel, Italy and the US. Nora Lee Mandel
