A Day Along the Way (film #9 in the Rural Settlement and Security section of the State of Israel section of Stephen Spielberg Jewish Film Archive). [Category: Sleaze & Outsider]

This 1968 Israeli film features interviews with people living in various border settlements in Israel. Unfortunately, with the exception of an interview with a pair of English-speaking turkey farmers who say that their parents are none too glad to have them be there, these interviews are entirely in Hebrew, making the film pretty much indecipherable to those who don’t speak that language. It does have perky opening credits music and some interesting visuals of the rural settlements where the people being interviewed live, giving it some historical value.

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