A series of motion pictures recently made at the new studios of the Israel Motion Picture Studios of Herzlia, Israel, is now being shown to American distributors, it was reported today by the Jewish Agency’s Economic Department in New York.

The films now being offered here include three 4-minute items depicting life in Israel, a short on Hebrew songs and dances, a 40-minute featurette called “Jonathan And Tall,” and a documentary “We Chose Life,” which was produced on the occasion of Israel’s fifth anniversary. The company is under contract to produce a documentary for the U. S. Government’s Foreign Operations Administration depicting that agency’s work in Israel.
