Josef Koudelka, a legendary photographer whose pictures of the 1968 occupation still stir up many emotions, embarks on a journey to document the conflict in Israel and Palestine. Forty years after the iconic photos of Prague being invaded by Russian and other friendly armies, the seventy-year-old photographer comes to the Holy Land. We are in 2008 and this internationally recognized artist films an armed conflict for the second time in his life, this time in Israel and Palestine. “Koudelka Shooting Holy Land” is an intimate and unique testimony of the creative process of the photographer as captured by his Israeli assistant Gilad Baram during the course of five years.
