A new motion picture company will be established in the colony of Nathania in palestine, it was announced here today by Oved Ben Ami, mayor of Nathania, who said that several prominent Englishmen have agreed to serve as directors of the enterprise which has been capitalized at $400,000.

The new company, Mr. Ben Ami stated, will make films in Hebrew, Arabic and English, and will utilize the services of the cinema talent driven out of Europe by Hitler. The plan is said to be looked upon favorably by the Government.
