The Knesset (film #21 in the General section of the State of Israel section of Stephen Spielberg Jewish Film Archive). [Category: Public Service]

This 50s Israeli film shows how the Knesset, Israel’s parliamentary governing body, works. Unfortunately, it’s in Hebrew, so it’s hard to follow. Even from the standpoint of not knowing the language, this appears to be a well-made and informative film, containing lots of footage of the Knesset in action, as well as various government workers doing their jobs. Some of the parliamentary discussions shown become quite heated. I wish I understood Hebrew with this one.

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