Download PDF for this date

The Israeli producer Yaacov Agmon, whose film “Siege” was screened in Moscow, returned today to Israel and said the film was screened five times before special invitees. The screening was not open to the general public but many of the invitees, personalities of the Soviet film industry, were Jews who were greatly impressed and moved by the film, he said. At the end of the festival three Israeli delegates attended the reception held at the Kremlin: Yaacob Agmon, Dr. Shaul Levin of the Film Council, and Israeli film critic Shlomo Shamgar.
