Hi,

We are unable to  add/update films made in Israel before 1923.

e.g.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0167500/


Prior to and during World War I, the area of Israel was controlled by the Ottoman Empire.

The  "Country of Origin"  could be:

Palestine before the British Mandate.

Thanks,

Yossi

Hi Yossi -

Thanks for bringing this problem to our attention.  I have reached out to our title editors who will take a look, once I get an update on the status I will let you know here.

Hi Yossi,

I've been looking into this a bit and I'm not an expert, but, would the period before 1923 not be covered by Palestine? Appreciate if you can provide more details on this but, although the borders have obviously changed in modern times, it would seem that the country / region was known as Palestine at the time.

Thanks and regards,

John

Hi John,


You're right, this area also was called Palestine before the British occupation .

The difference is that during the Ottoman period it was "Ottoman Palestine" and

after the First World War it was "British Mandate for Palestine".

The name Palestine can cover the period between the years 1880 to 1948.

Thanks,

Yossi

Hi Yossi,

Would you like us to add Palestine as the country to the data for the title?

Best regards,

John
