Acre – The Old New City (film #1 in the Cities section of the State of Israel section of Stephen Spielberg Jewish Film Archive). [Category: Sleaze & Outsider]

Spanish film from the 50s profiling the Israeli city of Acre, showing how modernization co-exists with ancient structures and traditions. Since this is all in Spanish, it’s a little hard to follow, but it still has some historical value, providing visual images of an Israeli city in the early years of Israeli independence.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: *. Weirdness: **. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.
