DSCN3204Film producer Nancy Spielberg was presented with this hand-made papercut at a screening of her film “Above and Beyond” – the previously untold story of the intrepid handful of young fliers who returned from WWII and shipped off to the fledgling state of Israel in 1948 to establish the country’s first air force.  The papercut captures the color scheme of Ms Spielberg’s promotional materials and the sense of dry desert sand, swirling around the planes.  The effect was produced by sifting pastel chalk onto a heavily textured mat board and blending the colored powders.  The words spell Hazak, hazak, v’nithazek – Be strong, be strong, and let us strengthen one another!
