Hill 769 – Connecting to our Roots

Israelis deserve to see television which connects them to their heritage.

They deserve to the land where their incredible history took place

They deserve a chance to see the beauty of their land

They deserve a chance to meet the incredible people who are willing to sacrifice everything they have for their people.

We will give Israelis a chance to reconnect to their roots

 

The land, the people, the history, archeology, the music, the spirituality, but mostly the incredible human drama and stories which takes place there.

לראשונה – סדרת טלוויזיה המבוססת ביש”ע

 

  סדרת הטלוויזיה הראשונה המתבססת על אירועים אקטואליים ביהודה ושומרון צפויה לעלות לשידור החודש. הסדרה,גבעה 769, מתרחשת במאחז דמיוני בהרי שומרון ומככבים בה שחקנים מקומיים. שלושת הפרקים הראשונים של הסדרה כבר הופקו והשאר בדרך


בימאי הסדרה הוא הירושלמי יחזקאל לנג, בוגר בית הספר לקולנוע “מעלה” ובית הספר למשחק “ניסן נתיב”. “יש”ע מעניק מטמון אמיתי של סיפורת מרתקת, החל מההיסטוריה התנ”כית והרוחנית העמוקה של האזור ועד לחזרה בימינו ולמאבק להחזיק באדמה בפני התנגדות עצומה. יש כאן כל כך הרבה דרמה אנושית טבעית המתרחשת באזור שאני מתפלא איך לא חשבו על זה קודם” אומר לנג. “התכנית מיועדת להיות שילוב מעניין של ז’אנרים שונים: דרמה ופעולה עם מנה גדושה של הומור

 

“לדעתי אנשים התעייפו מחיקויים הוליוודיים היוצאים מתל אביב ומחפשים משהו יהודי יותר, ישראלי יותר” ממשיך לנג. “אני מאמין שאנשים רוצים תרבות שתחבר אותם לשורשים שלהם במקום להרחיק אותם מהם ואת זה אנחנו שאופים לספק. אנו מקווים שהסדרה תיתן לאנשים הזדמנות להיפגש עם ההיסטוריה שלהם, עם ארצם ועם הירושה הרוחני  שלהם. אנחנו מתרגשים להביא קול חדש ושונה לנוף התרבות הישראלית”

 “לאור ההתקפות המתגברות של התקשורת נגד תושבי יהודה ושומרון לדעתי תזמון הסדרה הוא מתאים מתמיד. אך כל העבודה הזו דורשת הרבה כסף. אני מקווה כי יש נדבנים יהודים המכירים בחשיבות האפשרות לקולות אלטרנטיביים בתקשורת הישראלית המוכנים לתת ממשאביהם לקידום פרויקט חשוב זה.”

 הסדרה תשודר ההל מדצמבר 4 כשפרק נוסף ישודר כל 7 ימים

First Ever Television Series Based in Yesha

 

(Jerusalem, Dec. 2nd, 2008) – The first online television series ever to be based on current events in Judea and Samaria is to be launched this month. The show, called Hill 769, takes place in an imaginary outpost in the Samarian Mountains and stars actors from Samaria itself. The first three episodes of the series have already been produced and more are on the way.

 

 

Jerusalemite Yehezkel Laing, a graduate of the Maaleh Film School and Nissan Nativ Acting School, is the director of the series. “From the deep Biblical and spiritual history of the area to the present day return and struggle to hold on to the land in the face of massive opposition, Yesha provides a virtual goldmine of exciting storytelling.  There is so much natural human drama that takes here I am surprised no one thought of it before,” says Laing. “The show intends to be an interesting combination of many genres: drama and action with a heavy dose of humor.”

 

“I think people are tired of the Hollywood imitations coming out of Tel Aviv and are looking for something more Jewish, more Israeli,” says Laing. “I believe people want culture which connects them to their roots instead of alienates them from them it and that is what we hope to provide. We are excited to bring a new and different voice to the Israeli entertainment scene.” The series will be broadcast on the Arutz Sheva website with a new episode appearing every seven days.

 

“In light of the increasing media attacks against the residents of Judea and Samaria I think this project is timelier than ever. But all this work requires a lot of money. I hope there are Jewish philanthropists out there who recognize the importance of providing alternative voices in the Israeli media who will lend their resources to forwarding this important project.

Geert Wilders on Islam and it’s Threat to Israel and the World

Here is an excerpt from a speech given by Geert Wilders – a Dutch Parliamentarian and  chairman of the Party for Freedom, the Netherlands as well as the Producer of the film FITNA – at the Four Seasons Hotel in New York at an event sponsored by the Hudson Institute. 

“Now, I would like to say a few things about Israel. Because, very soon, we
will get together in its capitol. The best way for a politician in Europe to
lose votes is to say something positive about Israel. The public has
wholeheartedly accepted the Palestinian narrative, and sees Israel as the
aggressor. I, however, will continue to speak up for Israel. I see defending
Israel as a matter of principle. I have lived in this country and visited it
dozens of times. I support Israel. First, because it is the Jewish homeland
after two thousand years of exile up to and including Auschwitz, second
because it is a democracy, and third because Israel is our first line of
defense.

Samuel Huntington writes it so aptly: “Islam has bloody borders”. Israel is
located precisely on that border. This tiny country is situated on the fault
line of jihad, frustrating Islam’s territorial advance. Israel is facing the
front lines of jihad, like Kashmir, Kosovo, the Philippines, Southern
Thailand, Darfur in Sudan, Lebanon, and Aceh in Indonesia. Israel is simply
in the way. The same way West-Berlin was during the Cold War.

The war against Israel is not a war against Israel. It is a war against the
West.
It is jihad. Israel is simply receiving the blows that are meant for
all of us. If there would have been no Israel, Islamic imperialism would
have found other venues to release its energy and its desire for conquest.
Thanks to Israeli parents who send their children to the army and lay awake
at night, parents in Europe and America can sleep well and dream, unaware of
the dangers looming.”

Geert’s message underlies the important for our newest project – 

the TV production of IMPACT ISRAEL

Introducing “IMPACT ISRAEL”

One of today’s major threats to stability and world peace is the Iranian nuclear program and the extensive terrorist network that it supports worldwide. Iranian President Ahmadinejad made a mockery of the United Nations the other day where he gave one of the most anti-semitic speeches ever heard within the walls of the UN.
 
Something must be done.

A private new initiative is getting under way that involves the production of a TV program called IMPACT ISRAEL that will include an extensive use of media to encourage the democratic proclivity for promoting progressive change and making Israel and the rest of the world a better and safer place to live.

 This important TV series will highlight threats to the civilized world including Islamic Fundamentalist terrorism and the Iranian nuclear program.

The program will also include segments…

– that stress the positive influence of the State of Israel

– Israel’s contributions to the international community

– Israel’s geo-strategic importance as a bastion of democracy in the Middle East.

The TV program will present in-depth interviews with policy makers, think tank fellows, political analysts and security experts.

IMPACT ISRAEL will be produced and distributed by a team of people who were also involved in the production of Jerusalem on Line, hosted by Michael Greenspan, that was distributed worldwide in the 90’s.

It will be taped in Israel and televised worldwide with an emphasis on spreading the word to countries that have a high probability of supporting Israel if only their constituencies had more truthful information about Israel and the threats.
 
You know this information well and now we need to your help to make sure others hear this information too.

We are currently seeking the support of like-minded individuals and organizations to support this important program.

IMPACT ISRAEL is a private initiative that will be based on the public’s support.

For more information about this very timely and important program please contact avi@12tribefilms.org
