THE WAR OF INDEPENDENCE CLASSIC!
Four young Zionists are assigned to defend strategic Hill 24 outside Jerusalem, in order to maintain access to the besieged city during Israel's War of Independence. Through the diverse personal stories of the defenders, we gain a critical perspective on the birth of Israel and those who risked their lives to insure the State's survival. With Edward Mulhare, Haya Hararit, Michael Shillo and Michael Wager. Directed by Thorold Dickinson.
"This first major success of the young Israeli cinema is superbly directed."-Georges Sadoul
