Excuse my ignorance but as a filmaker I'm not aware of any "cultural
production" coming out of Istrael in the last ten, twenty years....
Must Israeli films I'm aware of (musicals, teen comedies,war films)
can hardly be described as "Cultural" products.So even without an
organized boycott I'll avoid Israeli films,they remind me of
mainstream Turkish movies- just try sitting through one of THOSE!!!
(To be avoided at all cost too). Israel seems to be a very arid in
terms of cultural production anyway. Maybe there are other areas other
than film that are thriving...
