Summary:
Forty years ago in June, a war pitted the Israelis against the Arabs and the US against the Soviet Union. It lasted only six days, but it changed the Middle East, and America's policy towards the region, and the war's results are embodied in every aspect of the current bloody Middle East conflict.

On its 40th anniversary, this groundbreaking documentary provides a fresh perspective on the war, bringing to life its battlefields, politics, and the personal stories of the many lives it affected. Today, the region remains trapped in a never-ending cycle of occupation, terrorism and reprisal, much of which is caused by the same animosity that triggered the war in the first place.

Shot on location in Israel, Palestine, Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Moscow, and Washington, and using newly declassified archives, home movie footage and personal photographs, evocative recreations, and dozens of interviews with participants, this film offers unprecedented insight into the story of the Six Day War. With an extraordinary cast of characters--Israeli Prime Minister Levi Eshkol, Defense Minister Moshe Dayan, Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser, Field Marshal Amer, and Lyndon B. Johnson, to name a few--Six Days in June examines how the war came about, how it was fought, and how it reshaped the regional political landscape...all in six days.
