  • Judged by the ideological terms on which it was founded, you could say the kibbutz experiment has failed. I, for one, could never have made a permanent home there. Yet the sense of community was real, and those cavernous dining halls supply some of the happiest memories of my youth. show more

  • While very informative, it doesn't work as an introduction to kibbutzim because it requires the viewer to have some prior knowledge of the history of Israel. show more

  • Inventing Our Life is a fascinating introduction to a movement scrambling to adjust enough to guarantee a future, without severing all ties to its principled past. show more

    Informative, especially if you\'ve ever been to one. I have, and it brought many fond memories. Well done.
