Seret: A Letter from London + Q&A

SERET London - the Israeli Film & TV Festival

Cinema

A film by Douglas Dalgleish and Melvyn Lipitch | 2017 | UK | English language | 50 mins

This screening will be followed by a Q&A with filmmakers Douglas Dalgleish and Melvyn Lipitch.

A Letter from London explores Britain’s central role in the creation of Israel, exploring the reasons why Britain promised a “Homeland for Jews” at a time when the country was fighting the most disastrous war the world had ever witnessed, and how the multiple strands of this story came together at miraculously the right time for Britain and the Jews.

Covering the events just prior to the Balfour Declaration in 1917, to the proclamation of the new state in 1948 and all that happens in between, the documentary features new film, archive sources and interviews with experts in history and law, politicians, ex-military personnel from the Jewish resistance, and a former head of Mossad, interspersed with personal anecdotes of daily life during British rule from residents of Palestine.
