The first decade of the new century has seen the appearance of numerous Israeli films by different directors, and at least one fiction book, who addressed various aspects of the Israeli involvement in Lebanon in some of its phases: the 1982 Lebanon War, the occupation of Beaufort and the evacuation from the so-called Security Zone (2000). Using these movies and the book as a sources - and framing them in the critical literature on the subject - this article discusses if such a cultural production gave rise to a public or political debate in Israel, or if they just responded to the individual needs of the directors who filmed them.
