With two short videos about Israel Roi Dvir opens his encounter with postgraduate students of journalism in Aarhus. The Deputy Ambassador of Israel in Denmark first plays a clip that covers the achievements of the country in its 65 years of existence. Images that range from S.Y. Agnon Nobel Prize, the Peace Treaty with Egypt, to the development of its aerospace industry appear in a timeline with musical background. The second video promotes innovations created in Israel: the cherry tomato, the USB flash drive, the solar water heaters, the instant text messaging. Neither of the two clips focuses on what the world would normally associate with Israel: the conflict with Palestine.
