A Colony Is Born (film #15 in the Pre-State section of Stephen Spielberg Jewish Film Archive). [Category: Sleaze & Outsider]

This silent French film from the 40s shows us a group of Jewish pioneers building a colony in Israel. This basically covers the same ground as Collective Adventure, only much more primitively. This gives it more of an outsider film feel, though the lack of soundtrack and the French title cards make it hard to follow, which lowers the interest level considerably. Still, this has historical value.

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