Jeremy Gimbel's film, HATIKVAH, is the Jewish documentary of the year.Through an honest and thoughtful inspection of people's perceptions and connections to Israel's National Athem, Gimbel reveals a delicately nuanced story of a Jewish people, living under different flags in different countries, striving to define their relationship with Israel.
Simple questions lead to complex answers as the knotted threads of Jewish history, culture, family, politics and legacies are teased apart by Jews from all walks of life. HATIKVAH will leave viewers a little raw, a little challenged and extremely inspired. It's the kind of film you carry around with you for months.
