IT IS NO DREAM The Life of Theodor Herzl
Film + Discussion + Reception
Live via Skype: Rabbi Marvin Hier, Simon Wiesenthal Center
It Is No Dream is a powerful documentary exploring the life and times of Theodor Herzl, father of the modern state of Israel. Narrated by Academy Award winner Sir Ben Kingsley and starring Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz as the voice of Theodor Herzl, the film examines how Herzl, a well known journalist and playwright, an assimilated, Budapestborn Jew, horrified by the Dreyfus trial in Paris and the anti-Semitism he saw spreading across Europe, took upon himself the task of attempting to create a Jewish homeland in Palestine against all odds. Over the span of 8 years, Herzl organized and led a worldwide political movement that within 50 years led to the establishment of the state of Israel. The film follows Herzl as he meets with Kings, Prime Ministers, Ambassadors, a Sultan, a Pope and government ministers from Constantinople to St. Petersburg, from Paris to Berlin, from Vienna to Vilna in his quest to build a Jewish nation. It Is No Dream features rare archival film footage of the period and never before seen stills and artifacts. Working with the Central Zionist Archives in Jerusalem, the production team was given access to the original manuscripts of Herzl's plays, diaries and his handwritten version of "Der
Judenstaat." Written and directed by Academy Award winner Richard Trank, co-written and produced by two time Academy Award winner Rabbi Marvin Hier, It Is No Dream is
the twelfth production of Moriah Films, the film division of the Simon Wiesenthal Center.
