THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS

Jerry Ford Gave Israel
Tacit Approval on Golan

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Is-
rael claimed last week that
its retention of the Golan
Heights had at least the
tacit approval of a previous
American Administration.
Foreign Ministry sources
said that Premier Menahem
Begin had shown a note to
that effect to President Car-
ter from his predecessor,
President Ford, to the then
Israeli Premier, Yitzhak
Rabin.
According to the sources,
Ford said the U.S. would
understand an Israeli re-
fusal to withdraw from the
entire Golan Heights.

Rabin last week would
not confirm the details.
But he said that both as
Ambassador to
Washington and as Prime
Minister he had conver-
sations with American
officials to assure Israel
greater freedom of action
in talks on the future of
the Golan Heights.

Rabin said the Americans
obviously did not mean that
Israel could hold on to the
entire Golan area. He said
the law adopted by the
Knesset Dec. 14 had not
"helped the situation."

NEW YORK (JTA) —
The first Israeli film festival
in New York will open next

month, presenting Ameri-
can viewers with the latest
achievements of the grow-
ing movie industry in Is-
rael.
From Jan. 13-21, 12 fea-
ture films — comedies,
dramas and musicals — will
be shown at the Manhattan
I Theater on the East Side
and the Continental Thea-
ter in Forest Hills, Queens.
The organizers of the fes-
tival expect at least 25,000
viewers to participate in the
event.
The festival is spon-
sored by the Israel Trade
Center in Jerusalem and
the Fund for Quality
Films in Tel Aviv. The fes-
tival is produced by In-
ternational Film Festival
Productions (IFFP).
"The main purpose of the
festival is to create a steady
market for Israeli films,"
according to Meir Fenigs-
tein, executive director of
IFFP.
Fenigstein, who is well
known throughout Israel as
a member of the singing
troupe, Puggi, said, how-
ever, that despite some im-
pressive movies made re-
cently in Israel the film in-
dustry there is still struggl-
ing, coping with numerous
problems, some of them un-

ique to Israel because of the
limited domestic market.
According to Amir Malin,
who is the partner of
Fenigstein, Israel produces
every year eight to 10 films,
most of them light com-
edies.
"But recently, the trend
in the Israeli movie indis-
try is toward the small
budgeted artistic
drama," Malin con-
tended, comparing the
present state of the Is-
raeli film industry to that
of Australia five years
ago.
Malin said that the aver-
age budget of an Israeli fea-
ture film is between
$300,000 and $400,000.
According to Fenigstein
and Malin, the highlight of
the festival will be the New
York premiere of director
Mira Racanati's drama, "A
Thousand Little Kisses."
Ms. Racanati, 31, who is
regarded as Israel's most
promising young film direc-
tor, is expected to attend the
opening of her film, the
story of two generations of
women and the way they
react to the death of a hus-
band and father. The film is
currently under considera-
tion for nomination in the
best foreign film category
for the 1g81 Academy
Awards.
Other new films, not
shown previously in New
York, are "An Intimate
Story," by director Nadav
Levitan, a drama about the
breakup of a marriage; "Re-
peat Dive," directed by
Shimon Dotan, the story of a
naval commando mission;
and the comedy "Lemon
Popsicle • (2)" directed by
Boaz Davidson.
"The Thin Line," Mic-
hal Bat Adam's drama,
and the "Troupe," a mus-
ical comedy by Avi
Nesher, which were re-
cently shown here and
were warmly received by
critics and audiences
alike, will also be shown
during the festival.
Organizers of the festival
said they hoped to extend
the Israeli film festival to
other major cities across•he
United States.

ORT and JDC
Celebrate Pact
at NY Parley

NEW YORK — The ag-
reement which was signed
35 years ago by ORT (Or-
ganization for Rehabilita-
tion through Training) and
the JDC (Joint Distribution
Committee), will be com-
memorated at the National
Conference of the American
ORT Federation, Jan. 22-24
at the Sheraton Center in
New York.
ORT receives an annual
allocation from the JDC
that helps ORT to maintain
schools and training prog-
rams for some 100,000 men,
women and children, in 26
countries.
Dr. Conrad Giles, presi-
dent of Detroit Men's ORT
and David Hermelin,
chairman of the national
organization committee,
will represent Detroit at the
conference.

Venezuelan Official Upset
With Golan Heights Move

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Dr. Rafael Caldera of Ven-
ezuela, President of the
Inter-Parliamentary Union
who is visiting Israel as a
guest of the Knesset, ex-
pressed disappointment
with Israel's annexation of
the Golan Heights at a press
conference last week. The
Union represents about 100
parliamentary bodies of
Western and Eastern bloc
nations. .
Referring to a conversa-
tion with Foreign Minister
Yitzhak Shamir, Caldera
said: "I considered myself
obliged to express my feel-
ing that that step (annexa-
tion) was not the best and
that it did not assist ad-
vancement of the peace pro-
cess." With respect to the fu-
ture of Jerusalem, he said:
"I understand the feeling of
the people of Israel toward
Jerusalem, but it is a very
difficult question."
Noting that the Palestine
Liberation Organization

had attended the sessions of
the Inter-Parliamentary
Union as observers, Caldera
explained that the invita-
tion was extended before his
election to head that body.
Although the PLO enjoys
official status in some Latin
American countries, this is
not the case in Venezuela,
he said.
