Spectacular rare archival film footage of Palestine in the tumultuous 1920s forms the heart of this documentary by Israeli filmmaker and scholar Ya’akov Gross. Considered lost for more than 70 years, these early films taken by Ya'akov Ben Dov, the father of Hebrew cinema, depict settlements and activities in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Rishon le Zion and Old Jaffa; visits by Albert Einstein and Winston Churchill; the funeral of Eliezer Ben-Yehuda; and early Zionists who pioneered the Third and Fourth Aliyahs. A vital and accessible look at a formative period in Israeli history.
