DAY TWELVE OF THE 2014 NEW YORK JEWISH FILM FESTIVAL
Fascinating doc by Michal Aviad (written by Aviad & Era Lapid) based on the actual diaries of the women who helped to found Kibbutz Ein Harod (located in the Jezreel Valley in northern Israel).
Arriving in the early 1920s, these were primarily educated women from the newly created Soviet Union, with high ideals to match their incredible physical stamina.
Spoiler Alert: Life did not treat them kindly. (JLH: 5/5)
