Description

Before Porky’s and American Pie, there was Lemon Popsicle (Eskimo Limon), an Israeli teen comedy franchise that conquered the Berlin Film Festival in 1978 and became a worldwide success. Funny, sexy and trashy, these films catapulted producers Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus (of Cannon Films) to worldwide success, while offering European audiences an image of sexually-liberated Israelis. This behind-the-scenes documentary is a slice of Israeli social history and a bittersweet tale of unforgettable characters. We are given unbelievable access to incredible archival materials as well as many candid interviews with key players.
