Video: Movie trailer: 'An American Hippie in Israel' (1972), considered one of the worst movies ever made

'An American Hippie in Israel' is about an American hippie traveling to Israel after being involved with the Vietnam War, befriending Israeli flower children, and encountering "menacing" mimes along the way. The film was presumed lost, but after resurfacing 38 years after its production, it became a "midnight sensation" in Tel Aviv and developed a cult following akin to The Rocky Horror Picture Show. It was then released internationally on home video by Grindhouse Releasing. Gil Shefler of The Jewish Daily Forward described it as "perfectly awful", offering that it "probably is the worst Israeli movie ever made, and a serious candidate for the worst movie of all time". Ben Hartman of The Jerusalem Post stated the film was "surely one of the worst films ever made in Israel, or beyond".
