“The Jewish question still exists, it would be foolish to deny it.” So wrote Theodor Herzl in Der Judenstaat in 1895. His argument for a Jewish state opens the documentary, It Is No Dream: The Life of Theodor Herzl. Read by Christoph Waltz over images of current turmoil, marching skinheads and anti-Semitic graffiti, Herzl’s case here seems both prescient and never-ending. Opening 10 August at the Quad Cinema, Richard Trank’s film uses photos (augmented by the Ken Burns effect) and diary pages to illustrate the evolution of Herzl’s thinking, as well as his career as a playwright and essayist in Vienna. From his coverage of the Drefyus trial to his appeals to influential families (the Rothschilds) and heads of state, Herzl developed a plan for what would become Israel.
