INVENTING OUR LIFE, Doc, NR, 80 min, English & Hebrew w/Eng subs.
"ENGROSSING! A fascinating introduction to a movement scrambling to adjust enough to guarantee a future, without severing all ties to its principled past."- Daniel Gold, The New York Times

"A brilliant film about one of history's most remarkable utopian experi-ments." - Joseph Dorman, Director of "Sholem Aleichem: Laughing in the Darkness"

Set against the backdrop of its glorious 100-year history, Inventing Our Life reveals the heartbreak and hope of Israel's modern kibbutz movement as a new generation struggles to ensure its survival. Can a radically socialist institution survive a new capitalist reality? How will painful reforms affect those who still believe in the kibbutz experiment, and continue to call it home?
Through the lens of its communal movement, director Toby Perl Freilich explores the modern history of Israel, from its revolutionary settlers to the political upheaval that shook the socialist foundations of the state. We meet first, second and third generation members from kibbutzim like Degania, the flagship commune established in 1909; Hulda, once near collapse and recently privatized; and Sasa, the first to be settled entirely by Americans and today Israel's wealthiest kibbutz.
With their desire to create a Jewish homeland and build a more just society, the first settlers helped place kibbutzim in the vanguard of Israeli history. In doing so, they became a magnet for all those who shared one thing in common - a powerful urge to invent their own life.Of Time and the City.
