Israel Film Festival retrospective honors classic musical-comedy, "Kuni Lemel," and its star, Mike Burstyn
The Israeli musical-comedy, "2 Kuni Lemels" was released in Israel in 1965 but rarely viewed in America. The film's star, Mike Burstyn was presented an award at the screening of the classic, "2 Kuni Lemels" by Zionistic TV gameshow-great, Monty Hall.
Mike Burstyn, discusses what it means about this film be honored as part of the 23rd Israel Film Festival in America some 43-years later.
Executive Producer of the Israel Film Festival, Meir Fenigstein, remarks about what's special about the 23rd annual event during Israel's 60th anniversary.
Recently-returned from a visit to Israel for its 60th birthday, Mr. Voight feels that Israel has borne the brunt of the mainstream-media's misunderstanding of Islamist imperialism's rejection of an autonomous, Jewish-led democracy in a region dominated by Islamic supremacism.
The true nature of Israel and its challenges- which Mr. Voight has experienced first-hand- isn't accurately presented by mainstream news-reportage, he asserts.
To obtain a truer understanding, he encourages people to visit Israel themselves- or begin by viewing some of the Israeli films featured in the Festival.
The Israel Film Festival runs in Los Angeles from June 11-26, in New York from Nov 5-20, and in Miami from December 10-18.
Mr. Voight has been added to this season's cast of the Fox TV series, "24," as nemesis to Jack Bauer (Kieffer Sutherland).
