An animated film short, best viewed in full screen mode.
The Secret History of Hava Nagila is an animated short story that could change everything you thought you knew about Jewish history.
Written and Produced by JewThink co-founder, Dan Jacobs, the short could be seen as a love letter to the popular song Hava Nagila or a death threat to anyone who dares sing it.
Much of the history covered in this short is based on actual events, with a twist.
Animator & Designer Gus Condeixa brings his unique interpretation to the story through imagery and immersive sound. Gus is Creative Director at The Jewish Chronicle.
The story is narrated to us by Israeli born, London living actress Lil Davis.
Special thanks to Simon Rosenberg for his help editing the script.
Love it. My own view is that Hava Nagila was written by Hitler based on a long-forgotten manuscript written by Haman and found by Pope Pius XII.
