#BDS: Top German director: No reason to boycott Israeli cinema

Wim Wenders, who directed Buena Vista Social Club, makes comments at press conference in Jerusalem.

World renowned German film director Wim Wenders said in Jerusalem on Monday that there was no need to boycott the Israel film industry, since all such moves inevitably backfire.
Wenders, who has directed dozens of internationally acclaimed films, including "Paris, Texas" and "Buena Vista Social Club," arrived on Sunday as the guest of honor for the 20th anniversary of the Sam Spiegel Israeli film Academy.
During a press conference, the director said Israel has exported some excellent films over the past few years, and that European groups should focus on screening Israeli movies, not boycotting the country's film industry.
