This sprawling, two-part documentary offers a detailed study of how Israeli cinema has evolved through seven decades, and how filmmakers were and are, at least in part, fueling their artistic impulses in reaction to the nation's political struggles. The first part covers the revolutionary spirit of films from 1933-1978, while the second reveals how the politics of 1980s movies transitioned to the more personal works of the modern era. Includes insights by Amos Gitai, Joseph Cedar, Menahem Golan, Moshe Ivgy, and others. 3 1/2 hrs. on two discs. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: Hebrew Dolby Digital stereo; Subtitles: English. In Hebrew with English subtitles.
