Jason goes to SVJFF--November 14

Still catching up, so still super-brief reviews.

COLLIDING DREAMS is the exhaustive and exhausting overview of the history of Zionism, from the early days of a dream to...well, not even to modern day. Way too huge to summarize. It might've actually worked better as a longer documentary mini-series, Ken Burns style. Best tidbit I learned: in 1903 the British offered Theodore Herzl and the World Zionist Congress their colony of Uganda as a Jewish state. There was much debate, but eventually the offer was rejected in favor of continuing to push for a Jewish state in Israel. But I like to speculate how history would be different if Uganda was the Jewish state.
