“A thoughtful and invaluable cinematic document. A significant achievement.” – The Hollywood Reporter
An ambitious and fascinating study on the history of the modern Zionist movement, from its late nineteenth century beginnings through to the present day. The Zionist Idea is an uncompromisingly exhaustive documentary that tracks Zionism through its major historical cornerstones including WW2, and seminal events such as the 1967 Six Day War and the 1973 Yom Kippur War. An essential and vital piece of filmmaking that takes an unapologetically in-depth look at the birth of the Jewish homeland.
