Cinema KKL at Ofakim Park in the Scarlet South


Fortunately and unfortunately, Friday, February 7 was a beautiful, sunny day in Israel's south. Fortunately, because the thousands of people visiting the northwestern Negev to see the breathtaking sight of anemones painting the region red couldn't have asked for better weather; Unfortunately, because almost no rain has fallen in Israel since last December's major winter storm.

The rain that did fall has turned the desert green as far as the eye can see, and together with the trees in KKL-JNF's forests, one would never guess that this is a semi-arid region. In order to celebrate this special time of year, KKL-JNF, together with other local and national organizations, invited the public to the northwestern Negev for the Scarlet South Festival, which has now become an annual tradition.

One of the unique festival events organized this year by KKL-JNF was a Cinema KKL screening of Spring in the Land of Israel, a recently restored 1928 film, at the Patish Fortress in Ofakim Park.
