Beneath the Helmet
is a documentary film about Israeli high school graduates.
Who are also soldiers.
Beneath the Helmet goes behind-the-scenes and explores the lives of five Israeli soldiers who just graduated high school. While their counterparts in the United States are enrolling in college, Israeli teenagers are drafted into a 2-3 year military service to safeguard their homes.
Opponents of Israel paint a grim picture of Israel’s men and women in uniform. But beneath every helmet there is an untold story. It is this story that our film seeks to share.
