Inventing our Life: The Kibbutz Experiment (2011)
The screening is followed by a discussion with director and writer and co-producer, Toby Perl Freilich. Set against the backdrop of the kibbutz movement’s 100-year history, Inventing Our Life reveals the heartbreak and hope of Israel’s communal living experiment as a new generation of women and men confront an essential question: can a radically socialist institution survive a new capitalist reality? In this “illuminating and entertaining” (Jewish Week) documentary, director Toby Perl Freilich explores the modern history of Israel, from its revolutionary settlers to the political upheaval that shook the socialist foundations of the state. With their desire to create a Jewish homeland and build a more just society, the first settlers helped place kibbutzim in the vanguard of Israeli history. In doing so, they became a magnet for all those who shared one thing in common – a powerful urge to invent their own life.
