The Raven - Ze’ev Jabotinsky 60 MIN

The Raven is a touching and exciting portrait of one of Israel’s most contradictory figures. Born in Odessa, Jabotinsky was a brilliant writer and passionate spokesperson for Russia’s ethnic minorities.

While Jabotinsky is often memorialized as a key founder of the Israeli far right, director Ayelet Ofarim presents a more complex portrait of his dynamic life and character, complimenting readings stunning animation and wonderful narration.
