"Ten Days in October" is a suspenseful documentary feature film describing, hour after hour, the unfolding of the "October events" in 2000, the worst civilian riots ever to occur in Israel, which forever altered the relations between Israeli Arabs and the State. The film is made up entirely of news clips, footage shot by protesters, and never-before-seen police footage. Together, in detailed chronological order, they describe events as they occurred in many locations around Israel that included Arab and then Jewish riots. These dramatic events left 14 people dead and hundreds injured as a result of Israeli police gunfire on Israeli civilians.
