BODY AND SOUL | The State of the Jewish Nation

About Doc Emet Productions

Doc Emet Productions was founded in 2008 as a 501(c)3 not-for-profit corporation with the mission of producing and disseminating educational resources in a variety of media that contributes to the strengthening of Jewish identity and Jewish nationhood, as well as promoting the values of democracy and freedom.

Doc Emet Productions' first feature documentary film The Case for Israel: Democracy's Outpost was released in October 2008.  It presents a vigorous case for Israel—for its basic right to exist, to protect its citizens from terrorism, and to defend its borders from hostile neighbors.

Alan Dershowitz, Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law at Harvard Law School, plays a central role in the film, and engages leading political, judicial and academic leaders from Israel and North America in honest and intelligent discourse on the critical challenges facing Israel and the West. Since the film's release at the Haifa International Film Festival, it has been translated into Arabic, French, German, Hebrew, Japanese, Russian, and Spanish.

Unmasked Judeophobia, the second feature documentary film presented by Doc Emet Productions, was released in October 2011.  Featuring leading experts from around the world—including Robert Wistrich, Ruth Wisse, Elie Wiesel, Natan Sharansky, Chief Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sachs, Alvin Rosenfeld, Pilar Rahola, Fiamma Nirenstein, Kenneth L. Marcus, Irwin Cotler— Unmasked Judeophobia examines the resurgence of lethal Jew-hatred in regions around the world and connects that resurgence with the campaign to dismantle the Jewish state.  Unmasked Judeophobia has been translated into Arabic, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.

Body and Soul – The State of the Jewish Nation is Doc Emet Productions' third feature documentary film.
