    Against a backdrop of threatening skies, clearly not a metaphor for the future of Israel's film industry, two Israeli feature films premiered on May 15, opening day of the 61st Cannes Film Festival. And a short by Israeli student filmmaker Elad Keidan took first prize in the...

    This has been a banner year for Israel's small but increasingly prestigious movie industry, but even in earlier decades, the country's filmmakers came up with Oscar-worthy presentations.
