Well, I did it, I made my first contribution to a worthy project at Kickstarter! There are three days to go — and a little over $3,000 has been raised towards the $4,500 goal, to enable Michael Rogosin to complete the documentary on his father Lionel Rogosin’s film “Arab-Israeli Dialogue”, the first filmed dialogue between an Israeli, Amos Kenan and a Palestinian, poet Rashid Hussein, made back in 1974.
If you look at Michael’s trailer for the project, you will see that I participated in the new documentary, together with Amos’ daughter Shlomzion.
Michael gave a showing of the original film from 1974 to a few Palestinians and Israelis in the Palestine-Israel Journal (PIJ) office, and filmed our responses to the film, which will feature as a part of the new documentary.
Here’s the link to the project: A Modern Arab-Israeli Dialogue.
