A documentary about Yigal Amir, the nationalist who assassinated the late prime minister Yitzhak Rabin in 1995, will be screened at a Jerusalem film festival that is partly subsidized by the state.

The film, Beyond the Fear, features interviews with Amir’s relatives, including his wife, Larissa, and his mother, Geula Amir. It also includes taped conversations between Amir and his son. One scene shows Amir reading a bedtime story to his son over the telephone.

The documentary was made by Israeli, Russian and Latvian filmmakers, with the narration primarily in Russian. Funding for the movie was provided by the Russian Ministry of Culture.
