The story is set in Palestine in 1947, during the British mandate period. The Zionists are fighting for the establishment of a Jewish state. A member of the armed Jewish underground has been sentenced to death by the British authorities. In return, his comrades kidnap a British officer. During the whole night they are waiting together for the outcome of the negotiation. If the British hang their friend at dawn, one of them will shoot the British officer. In the context of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict Dawn sheds a new light on a key moment in history that allows to re-situate the current political disputes. Written by producer

An awakening ?
9 June 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have to say I was quite surprised by my reaction to this film in the cinema. The actors just blew me away! They were subtle, disturbing, disturbed, refined. Really great to watch. Reminded me of the best Hitchcock films. Really liked the moody lighting and music. Didn't really know much about this before, so it really made me brush up on my history - the British in Palestine and it wasn't the crusades? Terrorists who were not only enemies of the British, but also of the Ben Gurion and the Haganah? I mean, the internal conflicts within Palestinian Zionists were really incredible. What I like about this film is that every character is well-played, and in the end, likable. It makes you think about Hannah Arendt's writing - we are all millimeters away from doing evil, and being killers. A must see indie film.
