VIDEO: Dry Bones, 1968

The year was 1968, the ‘Six Day War’ had just ended, Jerusalem was back in the hands of the Israeli people…and a young filmmaker by the name of Shira Lindsay decided to make a film about the historic days she was living in. The result was ‘Dry Bones’, a half-hour film. The script was simple, just use the word of God, straight from the Bible. The pictures were simple, just show what God was actually doing in re-born Israel.

Now 40+ years later, the film is as timeless and powerful as ever.
