Lotte Cohen - Building a new Country
52/70min' Documentary

In 1921, Lotte Cohen immigrated to Eretz Israel, where she ‘married’ architecture. 

Hundreds of her personal letters spanning over six decades, sketch the figure of the first woman architect who left her mark on the building of her new homeland, and much more. Through her own words, we get a glimpse of her socio-feminist and political views, which seem to stand the test of time, a hundred years later.
