Blue Box

By Michal Weits

In Israel, everybody knows about the "blue boxes" that were used in the 1950s to raise funds for the purchase of land in Palestine. Joseph Weits, the filmmaker's great-grandfather, is well-known for having planted millions of trees, less for orchestrating the expropriation of Palestinian land. His diaries reveal an uncomfortable truth.
