Dead Sea Movie Shows Environmental Crisis

Marty Novitsky reached out to the Oregon Documentary Film Festival recently to help expose an environmental crisis in his Dead Sea Movie. "I'm writing to you about an issue that is very important and dear to me. I think it is very important that people be made aware the dangers of the Dead Sea . Recently twenty-five teenage students were hit by the flood while they were hiking in Nahal Tzafit in the Judean Desert west of the Dead Sea. Ten of the students were killed because of the flooding. Recently, I made a film "Caught In Quicksand". I created that film to enlighten people of the dangers of the Dead Sea. This film was made prior to this terrible accident that took the lives of the ten teenagers." There has been a follow up article to this film at this blog link. "There isn’t much I can say about this beautiful film that my cousin Marty Novitsky made along with the talented cinematographer Uladzimir Taukachou. It’s filmed in Israel and it’s about the Dead Sea and what happened to Marty while he was visiting one year. Marty narrates it and tells the story on how when he was walking along the Sea, he got caught in quicksand. Only with the help of a minor miracle was he able to get out of the dire straits he found himself in. Filled with beautiful film clips of the Dead Sea and New York City, Marty talks of his inspirations that lead him to help everyone he meets."
