IT IS NO DREAM:|
THE LIFE OF THEODOR HERZL
ST. LOUIS PREMIERE
DIRECTOR: RICHARD TRANK
DOCUMENTARY: 97 MIN.
A compelling profile. Against all odds, a cosmopolitan
Viennese playwright and journalist becomes the
father of the state of Israel. Born in Budapest to an
assimilated family, Herzl had little connection to his
Jewish heritage. While working as a newspaper reporter in
Paris, he witnessed firsthand, virulent anti-Semitism in
the wake of the Dreyfuss affair. Advocating for and
protecting Jews evolved into an obsession to build a
Jewish homeland. The film expertly marries vintage photos,
newsreels, historical documents, and scholarly interviews.
Narrated by Oscar-winning actor Sir Ben Kingsley and
starring Christopher Waltz as the voice of Theodor Herzl.
