New York, NY - January 28, 2013 - Kino Lorber is proud to announce the DVD release of Raphael Nadjari's documentary, A History of Israeli Cinema. This two-part documentary explores Israel's cinema history within the context of its social and political history.

This 2-disc DVD set will become available to the general public on January 29th, with a SRP of $34.95.

Raphael Nadjari's extraordinary two-part documentary A History of Israeli Cinemaweaves together clips from more than 70 years of Israeli film with commentary from filmmakers, scholars and critics, including Amos Gitai, Joseph Cedar, Menachem Golan and Ronit Elkabetz.
Accessible to both fans and newcomers, the film traces the evolution of Israel's cinema alongside its political and social history. Part One spans the years 1933 to 1978, examining the film industry's relationship to the Zionist struggle to form a state, and the propagandistic revolutionary cinema that resulted. Part Two covers the shift to the realist filmmaking of the late 70s, and the transition from the political films of the 80s to the more personal cinema of today.
The most comprehensive and compelling record of the subject ever attempted, A History of Israeli Cinema reveals a cinematic national identity that is inextricably linked to the ever-changing emotional reality of the country.
