From David Charles Plate: "The rationalization for my film collage being 7 and ½ hours is inspired by the original tagline for 2001: A Space Odyssey, where it’s called, ‘The Ultimate Trip’. I thought to myself, what if I produced a film that is literally the length of an acid trip, that laid out its own unique story using components of other stories to tell it? My film is a series of lessons in Kabbalah which uses pieces of media to convey those lessons, fully loaded with examples of happenings that are both impossible but true, at the same time."

Spilled Blood, A False God & Real Estate is a graphic novel about the Israeli Occupation of Palestinian land. Written and illustrated by Rabbi Borukh Goldberg, it collects poetry examining the destructive effects this Occupation has had on the souls of everyone involved, occupiers as well as occupied. In stark, yet detailed, red, white & black illustrated pages, the corrosiveness of ethnic hatred is demonstrated.
Some of the topics addressed concisely in this book are:
-Operation Cast Lead against Gaza
-Torture in Israeli prisons
-Conflicted settlements in Hebron
-Seizure of Palestinian orchards & farms on the West Bank
The book calls for an end to the political misuse of religion and an end to military violence. Ultimately, although the current reality outlined by the pictures and words is bleak, a way forward --for those courageous enough to take it-- is suggested.
