About this item
This comic look at the rebirth of Israel makes newsreels fun. Even before Israel was a state, in the early 1920s and '30s, Israel's first film studio, Carmel Films, churned out newsreels every week. Carmel captured treasured images of Meir Dizengoff riding his white horse, Hanna Meron as a young girl selling shoelaces, the debut of the Hahima Theater, David Ben Gurion and Shlonsky's hairdos, and many other golden moments. In 1962, pioneer filmmaker Nathan Axelrod and his young collaborators, Uri Zohar and Yoel Zilberg - armed with a script by Haim Hefer and the voice of Topol (Fiddler On The Roof) - collected and edited the newsreels. They presented this historical footage as The True Story Of Palestine, a funny and joyful look at the early days of the Jewish state.
