IT IS NO DREAM: THE STORY OF THEODOR HERZL

Richard's latest feature documentary, IT IS NO DREAM: THE STORY OF THEODOR HERZL, explores the life and times of Theodor Herzl, father of the modern State of Israel. Narrated by Academy Award® winner Sir Ben Kingsley and featuring Academy Award® winner Christoph Waltz as the voice of Theodor Herzl, the film examines how Herzl, a well-known journalist and playwright and an assimilated Budapest born Jew, took upon himself the task of attempting to create a Jewish homeland in Palestine. Over the span of 8 years, and against all odds, Herzl organized and led a worldwide political movement that within 50 years led to the establishment of the State of Israel. Running time: 97 Minutes.
