Power of variety. Review of the book The Contemporary Israeli Cinema 2 ed. by Joanna Preizner, Kraków 2018, 260 pp.

Israeli contemporary cinema, according to many critics, is one of the most interesting world cinemas. Such theses can be concluded from the first series of the books on Israeli cinema — Contemporary Israeli Cinema (ed. by J. Preizner, Austeria, Kraków 2015). This book was well received by the academic environment. Thus, the authors and the editor of it decided to create a second similar work. It was definitely a good decision. The reader can check it out at the very beginning of lecture, reading the introduction, written by Joanna Preizner. It is a text ardent in tone and elegant in style. A very important quality of the book is its broad spectrum of the themes of the articles it consists of. There are in it presentations of the splendid film accomplishments, touching some difficult motives of the Israeli society: condition of women, homosexual relationships and the situation of the LGBT environment and also the ghetto condition of contemporary Hasidim, which is similar to their condition in the 16th-century Europe.
