  1. El Biffo's rating of the film Children of the Sun

    Magnificent doc made from a treasury of home movies filmed on kibbutzim from 1935-1960s, telling the story of growing up in the unique, experimental communist collective. No sit-down interviews; the adult children narrate the footage telling the story from the deepest recesses of their hearts-the pain of giving up their children to the collective, barely knowing their own parents, mixed w their love for the kibbutz.

  2. Rosina Rossini's rating of the film Children of the Sun

    Fantastic chronicle of the Kibbutz system from its beginning to its demise, told through interviews and archival footage. In the darkness of the movie theatre, I watched my father gasp as he saw a shot of his long dead childhood friend come up on the screen. One of my favourite documentaries of all time.
