A History of Israeli Cinema
Raphaël Nadjari, France/Israel, 2009, 210m
Raphaël Nadjari (Tehilim, NYJFF 2008) returns with an extraordinary documentary on the evolution of Israel’s cinema and its parallels with the country’s history. Clips and interviews with directors, scholars and critics—including NYJFF alumni Joseph Cedar, Amos Gitai, and Moshe Mizrahi—explore early Zionist propaganda films, ethnic comedies aimed at Sephardic immigrants, political films of the ’80s, and more. Part I covers 1933-1978. Part II covers 1978-2005. Shown with one intermission.
