QUENTIN TARANTINO AND LAWRENCE BENDER ANSWER QUESTIONS IN TEL AVIV ABOUT INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS


Again, many thanks to David Hudson and The Auteurs Daily for continuing to provide a vital, irreplaceable lifeline to the world of Internet film coverage. Via David comes this video post from Cinemascopian of footage taken during the Tel Aviv press conference introducing Inglourious Basterds to Israeli cinemagoers.I have posted this clip sight unseen on the word of Cinemascopian (and the judgment of David Hudson in passing it along) that what follows is a fascinating opportunity for Quentin Tarantino and his (Jewish) producer Lawrence Bender to address questions on how the movie recognizes the Holocaust and other concerns this particular audience might have. I'm looking forward to seeing it myself and thought, of course, that those who have followed and participated in the Basterds debate, here and elsewhere, would likely relish hearing what the director would have to say in this unique situation.
