The True Story of Palestine

The True Story of Palestine

DVD (Subtitled)

Overview

Nathan Axelrod, Uri Zohar, and Yoel Zilberg re-edit newsreel footage originally shot by Carmel Films to create a satirical look at the early years of the Jewish state. Even before Israel was granted statehood, it had established it's first film studio. Throughout the 1920s and 30s, Jewish filmgoers would witness the debut of the Habima Theater and get the latest news on their favorite stars courtesy of newsreels produced by Carmel Films. By re-editing these classic newsreels and forming them to a script by Haim Hefer, Axelrod, Zohar, and Zilberg turn history on its head. Narrated by famed Fiddler on the Roof star Topol, The True Story of Palestine tells the story of Israel from a decidedly humorous perspective.
