A Movie to Watch Out For...

Unfortunately, this probably won't get into many theatres.....I hope it comes out on DvD soon.
Protocols of Zion, a new film by American director Marc Levin, premiered Wednesday in New York. The 93-minute film, which will be released on October 21, explores the resurgence of anti-Semitism in the wake of September 11th.

The idea for the film, according to Levin, came to him shortly after 9/11, when an Egyptian taxi driver in New York talked to him about the attack on the World Trade Center as a Jewish conspiracy referred to in The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, the notorious forgery created 100 years ago.

In his soon-to-be released film, award-winning filmmaker Levin examines the current popularity of the Protocols, which are sold on Amazon and have been aired as a TV drama in Egypt, among other things.

In a series of conversations throughout the film, Levin speaks to, and sometimes confronts, various people, including Arab Americans, Black nationalists, Christian evangelists, white supremacists, Kabbalist rabbis, and Holocaust survivors.
