Call of the Earth (film #13 in the Pre-State section of Stephen Spielberg Jewish Film Archive). [Category: Sleaze & Outsider]

This film from 1940 documents the development of a Jewish agricultural settlement in Palestine. Unfortunately, it’s missing its soundtrack, so it’s kind of hard to follow. There are some historically interesting visual images of Zionist agricultural life in Palestine here, but I couldn’t make heads or tails of the story.

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