24th Annual Central Florida Jewish Film Festival
Nelson’s Last Stand
Nominated for Best Israeli Film – DocAviv Film Festival
Nominated for Best Israeli Film at the 2021 DocAviv Film Festival, this is the crazy story of the 1970’s bohemian holiday village established by Rafi Nelson on the Sinai border that found him caught in a border conflict between Israel and Egypt. In November ’77, after years of war, Egyptian President Anwar Sadat landed in Israel with a message of peace and a promise to take back the occupied Sinai soil. Nelson, who feared losing his holiday village, went to war to preserve his party paradise. He harnessed his comrades at the top of the government to protect the small country he had built. The affair, which lasted nearly a decade, is a web of political intrigue that forced Israel into an entanglement that endangered peace with Egypt. NELSON’S LAST STAND is an absurd look at the conflict in the Middle East through a square kilometer of passion.
