Sirens blare, warning Israelis they have only seconds to find shelter from the rockets being launched from Palestinian territories. Children run for their lives, while a surface-to-air interceptor missile is launched, racing toward the sky. And in an instant, fear turns to joy as a deadly image morphs into celebratory fireworks, laughter and cheering crowds.
This is the genius of filmmaker Eyal Resh.
Resh doesn’t dream about being the next Steven Spielberg or Martin Scorsese. The 27-year-old Israeli has come to America not to “make it” in Hollywood, but to impact a tougher audience: the global theatre of world opinion.
