Made in Jerusalem: Film & Television + Ani-Nation
Oct 10, 2021 12:00 PM EST

We're delighted to bring you an insider's look into film and television Made in Jerusalem, a conversation with Yoram Honig, the visionary founder & director of the Jerusalem Film & Television Fund, and filmmaker Gidi Dar, whose profound Legend of Destruction tells the story of the destruction of the Second Temple. The internationally acclaimed film was nominated in 7 categories, including Best Picture, at Israel's 2021 Ophir Awards and won for Best Art Design, Best Music, Best Editing and Best Sound Design!

From Yoram, we'll learn the Fund's role in bringing numerous films and television series to Jerusalem and in making it a hub of the international animation industry. And from Gidi, whose classic Ushpizin is a beloved part of Israel's film culture, we'll get a behind the scenes look at the making of Legend of Destruction and the innovative animation that brings it to life.  Yonatan will give us insight into how he and Assaf created and produced  this extraordinary score.

The film is garnering Israeli and international critical acclaim (see Variety article) for its artistic innovation, score, script and timely topic of societal polarization.

We invite you to join us for this illuminating conversation. You can register here.

The backStorygroup thanks Steve and Sharon Lieberman for their generous sponsorship of this program.
