Parents Protest
YK War Film


Deputy Defense Minister
Mordehai Zipori has asked
the Censorship Board to
hear complaints by repre-
sentatives of the Yad
Lebanim parents of war
dead organization on "The
Vulture," a film about the
aftermath of the Yom Kip-
pur War which opened two
weeks ago in Tel Aviv.
/ The controversial film
depicts the struggles of a
young war veteran who
drifts from compiling a
memorial album dedicated
to a friend into producing
such albums on order for be-
reaved parents. His success
in comforting the parents of
other dead soldiers turns
the hero into a "vulture" in
his own eyes — feeding on
the memory of corpses.
Described by Israeli cri-
tics as technically good, but
extremely controversial,
the film has been selected
for directors' showings at
the Cannes Festival. In Tel
Aviv; however, the theater
screening the film has re-
ceived bomb threats and its
entrance was vandalized.

heritage, they have the reputation of becoming an integral part
of the community they live in. And Scotland is no exception.
