A film by Emil Knebel, produced by the Information Center (Hasbara), and the Center for Culture and Education of the Moshavim Movement, marking the 40th anniversary of the first Moshav Ovdim in the country, Nahalal. The film opens with a scene of a calf being born in a barn, with Nahalal farmers huddling around a cow about to give birth, and depicts the daily life and labor of the Nahalal farmers while plowing the fields, bringing milk and eggs to the distribution center, and more. The film emphasizes the impressions and the poetic of everyday life in a visually unique film in the history of Israeli cinema, but the film was never released due to the disapproval of Nahalal’s residents with the final result.
