City Lights Pictures announced today the release of its torn from the headlines, feature-length documentary "Suicide Killers" by the noted French filmmaker Pierre Rehov.

Pierre Rehov, a novelist and magazine editor, has produced and directed seven major documentaries about the bloody conflict and tensions in the Middle East. Based on testimonies, analyses and archives his films broach subjects rarely talked about.

In his latest film, "Suicide Killers," Rehov examines the psychopathology of suicide bombers, including never before seen footage of a suicide bomber as he prepares for a mission to kill innocent Jewish and Arab victims, taking us on a disturbing journey deep into a culture that few can comprehend. The film includes interviews with families of Hamas members who have "martyred' themselves, as well as those whose efforts have been thwarted. What Rehov found will contradict every notion you've ever had of this terrifying phenomenon. Lisa Magnas who has worked with Rehov on several of his projects is Executive in Charge of Production.

Danny Fisher, CEO of City Lights Media Group said; "We feel this will be one of the most important and provocative documentaries of the year."
