Nashville, TN, November 14, 2017 – Award winning director David Kiern, iconic music composer Bob Farnsworth, and the creative team from Hummingbird Productions presented a special screening of their documentary “I AM Israel” at the Knesset, the Israeli parliament, on November 6, 2017, in Jerusalem. The event, which was produced by the Hayovel organization and held before 350 people, including Knesset Members Sharren Haskel, Rabbi Yehuda Glick, Robert Ilatov, and the Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein, was in part to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the unification of Israel. To view a highlight video of this presentation, please see:

Kiern is the writer, producer and director of “I AM Israel.” Farnsworth and his company Hummingbird Productions - a renowned, multi-award winning film and sound production company which has built its reputation as one of America's leading producers of commercials, sound design and original music - provided the entire musical score for “I AM Israel.” To view a portion of the film screened at the Knesset, please see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9yBr2cLVi-s

“I AM Israel” is a film which takes viewers on a soaring journey through the Land of the Bible, and introduces them to Jewish men and women whose very lives are a testimony to the promises of God. Filmed in crystal clear 4K and narrated by award winning actor John Rhys-Davies, best known for his roles in the “Indiana Jones” and the “Lord of the Rings” series, “I AM Israel” brings to life the inspirational story of Israel like it’s never been seen before.

David Kiern said, "Our goal for producing the film ‘I AM Israel’ was to ignite the hearts of Christians around the world with a deep love for the Land of Israel and the Jewish people. Anti-Semitism is a vile problem around the world, and for my Christian brothers and sisters, it's our responsibility to fight it. Telling the leaders of Israel in the Knesset that millions of Christians around the world love and respect them was one of the highlights of my life.”

Adds Bob Farnsworth, “Going to Israel and meeting members of the Knesset was, for me personally, an amazing experience. The members of the Knesset said it’s an interesting time for all of us – that the ancient prophecies about the nations of the world helping to rebuild Israel are currently being fulfilled. There is a great deal of unity in this process – both Christians and Jews alike are feeling like now is the time for all of us to come together. I loved how honest the members of the Knesset were in describing their excitement about the thousands of people from around the world who have been coming to Israel to harvest crops, especially the vineyards. They expressed great gratitude for these actions, and that they believe that scripture is being fulfilled – scripture that predicted that someday the nations of the world would participate in the rebuilding of Israel. This is an amazing phenomenon that’s happening – it lets the Israeli people know that they are not alone.”

Farnsworth continues, “The film ‘I AM Israel’ was truly a wonderful project to work on! We have always enjoyed a great relationship with David Kiern, and were thrilled to have had the honor of using our FUSIC production process on this documentary. Basically, we take a team approach to every project we commit to, by bringing together directors, sound designers and composers, to work in tandem throughout the production process. Historically, everyone has tended to be compartmentalized. But through what we call our FUSIC process (the fusion of film and music), we can bring everyone around the same table, right from the very beginning. FUSIC integrates the sound and music of a film, television, or web project from the VERY INCEPTION of an idea, through to its final completion.”

“Our goal for future projects is to create true moments of FUSIC: to strive for at least one such moment in every piece of film and music work we do. For the past few years, I have been demonstrating our FUSIC process around the United States – to directors who ‘think audio’ and to composers who ‘think visuals.’ It is crucial to us that content creators should always start a project with the importance of sound at the top of mind,” Farnsworth concludes.
