Children of the sun by Ran Tal( Visual )

4 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in Hebrew and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Children of the first kibbutzim in Israel were born in the early 20 th century to youthful parents, full of hope. They have been called "Children of the Sun", because they considered them children of the "Sun of Nations" Revolution in Israel. They were born into a utopia and were destined to become the "New Man". They were educated in a ideological society that aspired to replace the traditional family with the collective one, to subjugate the will of the individual in favor of the common good and a life of equality. "Children of the Sun" tells the story of the journey in search of a society's memory and the concepts that have passed from the world. The film is a collage comprised of over eighty amateur films. Rare footage that was shot at the kibbutzim between 1930 and 1970, rare recordings and conversations with family and friends. The tapestry of rare materials from which the film is compiled creates both a very personal and very public story, a form of super story about one of the most fascinating myths of the Zionist movement in the Land of Israel
