World premiere

Set in Mandatory Palestine in the dying days of the British Empire, this new documentary offers a fascinating account of the murder of young Jewish resistance fighter Alexander Rubowitz by decorated British Army officer Roy Farran. A tragic event and an embarrassment to His Majesty’s government, the murder of Rubowitz served as a painful symbol of the long, violent battle between the British forces in Palestine and the Zionist paramilitary organisations who demanded independence. Based on a book by the late British-Jewish historian David Cesarani and featuring dramatic reconstructions as well as a wealth of archival materials, Mandate for Murder tells a devastating story that is both deeply personal and entirely political.
