Summary "Jerusalem, Take One! Memoirs of a Jewish Filmmaker is a behind-the-scenes look at the life of documentary filmmaker Alan Rosenthal, the maker of over sixty films including Day of Peace, Out of the Ashes, A Nation Is Born, and On the Brink of Peace. As a witness to so much recent Israeli history through a camera's view-finder, Rosenthal himself makes as much of an interesting subject as the events he documents." "This is a memoir, not a history textbook, and Rosenthal himself is the true subject of the book's most intensely personal and introspective moments, stories of growth and learning, of England and family, of love and loss, of ideological disappointment and renewed hope. Rosenthal's tale is one of progress toward the man he wishes to be, the films he feels he must make, and the cultural identity he seeks to develop for himself and all Jewish people." "Jerusalem, Take One! features thirty-six black-and-white photographs." --Book Jacket
