Jericho's Echo, a documentary about the punk scene in Israel, isn't so much all about the actual punk music, but how Israel's punk rock bands view society. The film offers a glimpse at the sights, sounds, and points of view that those of us not in Israel would never get to see. While I don't view a ton of documentaries, I wanted to see this film for two reasons: first, to get an idea of how Israeli punk rock music compares to the same music here in the U.S.; and second, to find out more about the actual politics of the musicians, and how their political beliefs influenced their music.
