Synopsis by Kristie Hassen
Baruch Agadati combined segments from his 1932 project This is the Land (the first feature film with dialogue in Hebrew) and from 53 years of documentary footage to create this interesting piece. Written, directed and photographed by Agadati, the film portrays the lifestyles and everyday goings-on of the forefathers who pioneered the State of Israel. The history of these people and their culture is examined in retrospect with narrative commentary, accompanied by music written and conducted by Noam Sherif. Among the footage are shots of such significant figures as Albert Einstein, Winston Churchill and Jordan's King Abdalla.
