Director Simone Bitton

The film investigates the death of Rachel Corrie, a young American peace activist, who was killed in the Gaza Strip in March 2003. Corrie, along with friends and fellow activists, attempted to prevent the demolition of a Palestinian home when an Israeli bulldozer crushed her. Witnesses of the event claim her death was deliberate.

The New York Times by

Regrettably, the film, almost devoid of music, is drastically undermined at its end by an inadvertently comic rap tribute by the Kansas City performance artist to the "American citizen with Palestinian blood."


Time Out by David Fear

While the director doesn't hide her sympathies, she leaves remarkably few stones unturned in a dogged search for answers.


Boxoffice Magazine by Mark Keizer

It's a well structured, sometimes riveting piece of information gathering that proves once again that Corrie's death was unnecessary and that closure has remained intriguingly, maddeningly, sadly elusive.


Village Voice by Melissa Anderson

Bitton, best known for her 2004 nonfiction film "Wall," about the barrier Israel is building along its border with the occupied territories of the West Bank, questions her interviewees calmly and dispassionately (though her voice is heard, she is never seen). It's a strategy that yields damning revelations.


The Hollywood Reporter by Ray Bennett

The drive to keep alive the name of a young American woman who died beneath a U.S.-made bulldozer driven by an Israeli soldier in Palestine continues in Simone Bitton's sober documentary Rachel.
