All-hebrew Talkie Made in Tel Aviv

March 17, 1935
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The first all-Hebrew talking and singing film which was made entirely in this city will be exhibited shortly under the patronage of the municipality, it was indicated in a letter to the Aga Film Company. The production is called “This Is the Land.”

The municipality has sent to the producers the city flag to be flown at the local theatre at which the film will be first shown. The message expresses the city’s appreciation of the Aga Company’s accomplishment and the hope that it will lead to the development of a local film industry as a mean of valuable publicity for modern Palestine and the Hebrew language.
