Two years ago, we had the pleasure of meeting a talented film director named Michal Zilberman. She took us to what turned out to be a drag bar, but hey--it had atmosphere. And at some point the conversation turned to the 2nd Lebanon War, and what had happened with the IDF reservists. We said, "What a great topic for a movie!"
She said, "But everyone already knows about this here."
And we said, "No one knows about this in the U.S."
That was how we started down the long and...interesting...path of our first production, "Reporting For Duty," which will be excerpted this Friday, July 17, on "NOW" on PBS (check here for airtime).
