ABOUT DOC EMET PRODUCTIONS
Doc Emet Productions was founded in 2008 as a Massachusetts-based 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation. Its first regional office was established in Tennessee in 2016. Driven by its mission to produce hard-hitting feature documentary films that promote the values of freedom and democracy, and contribute to the strengthening of Jewish identity and nationhood, Doc Emet Productions has released four feature documentaries and is in production with its fifth.
Our first feature documentary film The Case for Israel: Democracy’s Outpost (2008) 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 (2011) examines the resurgence of lethal Jew-hatred in regions around the world and connects that resurgence with the campaign to dismantle the Jewish state. The film features leading experts from around the world, including Robert Wistrich, Ruth Wisse, Elie Wiesel, Natan Sharansky, Chief Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sachs, Ron Dermer, Alvin Rosenfeld, Alan Dershowitz, Pilar Rahola, Fiamma Nirenstein, Kenneth L. Marcus, and Irwin Cotler. Unmasked Judeophobia has been translated into Arabic, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish. The film has been incorporated into the Yad Vashem Visual Center in Jerusalem.
Body and Soul: The State of the Jewish Nation (2014) presents a comprehensive examination of the broad and deep connections between the Jewish people and the Land of Israel. World-renowned historians, archaeologists, political scientists, religious leaders, and international law and media experts trace the evocative evolution of the relationship between the Jewish People and their homeland that is over 3,000 years old. Body and Soul: The State of the Jewish Nation has been translated into Arabic, Estonian, Finnish, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Russian, Portuguese, Spanish, and Swedish.
The Fight of Our Lives: Defeating the Ideological War Against the West (2018) examines the penetration of anti-Western ideas and movements into academia, politics, society, and culture. The film features 31 distinguished scholars and experts, including Niall Ferguson, Ruth Wisse, Victor Davis Hanson, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Alan Dershowitz, Brooke Goldstein, Erick Stakelbeck, Allen West, Melanie Phillips, Robert Paquette, Tammi Rossman Benjamin, and Robert Nicholson. The film is screening throughout North America, Europe, Australia/Oceania, Asia and Africa.
