Testimonials & approbations
“It’s not every day that a movie literally has you questioning every aspect of your life... No surprise at all that this movie is being shown in film festivals around the world as well as high schools all over the U.S. Israel - and the Jewish people - have a lot to be proud of, and it’s thanks to your beautiful efforts that we get to learn and understand not only the Jewish story but its global impact.”

"...When the Smoke Clears can touch hearts, change minds, and make a difference for Israel. Its profound themes and empathetic cast align seamlessly with our latest research on how to connect American Jews - and particularly millenials - to Israel. I believe it may be JU’s most impactful film to date, and that is saying a lot."
Fern Oppenheim, Brand Israel Group
“Exodus 91 is a remarkable re-telling of one of the most remarkable events in Israel's history: the last-minute airlift of thousands of Jews at the height of the Ethiopian civil war. The film fills in a major gap in our understanding of just how dramatic the rescue was. I am indebted to the filmmakers for enriching my appreciation of the Ethiopian Jewish community and of the State of Israel. I hope the film gets the wide distribution it deserves.”
Yossi Klein Halevi, NY Times bestselling author
"As someone who works with teens and minorities through StandWithUs, I am always looking for new material that will help educate and inspire people to see Israel for what it is; a true democracy where all are free to enjoy human rights. After viewing Beneath the Helmet, I knew that it was a film that would captivate both young and old as well as Jewish and non-Jewish audiences...I encourage everyone to see it!"
