For decades, filmmakers Herz Frank and Maria Kravchenko have been chasing the complicated story of Yigal Amir, Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin’s assassin. Since being incarcerated, Amir has found love with a woman, who divorced her husband so they could be together, and now has a child. Today, Amir’s morality is intimately revealed through bedtime stories he shares with his son over the phone from jail. Holy tales about the miracle messiah and a man who slept for 70 years that relate directly to his personal life, and raise incredibly unexpected oppositions: biblical/tabloid, providence/politics and propaganda/publicity. A riveting highbrow meets lowbrow parable that blends romance and religion, crime and consequence, murder and life’s eternal mysteries, Beyond the Fear pushes past the sensational headlines to probe the human motivations behind the ultimate act of sin. Filmmaker Herz Frank’s final film is an achievement in storytelling that shows not only one man’s capacity for good and evil, but mankind’s. Angie Driscoll
