Out now:

The Lost Crown

Director : Avi Dabach

An Israeli filmmaker embarks on a perilous quest to reveal the fate of The Aleppo Codex, A.K.A The Crown, which is considered the most accurate and valuable manuscript of the Hebrew Bible. After being safeguarded for seven centuries by the Jewish community of Aleppo, more than a third of its pages disappeared while smuggled to Israel in 1957. As the filmmaker, a great grandson of the Crown keeper, navigates the dark corridors of hidden history, archival documents and rare testimonies reveal an astonishing story involving an Israeli president, Mossad agents, passionate rabbis, and antique dealers.  

We are happy to announce the international premier of the film take place in Miami Jewish Film festival on the 14th of January.

ABOUT

Micha's Films was founded in 2009 by Judith Manassen-Ramon as an independent production company, focused on documentary stories told in both linear and non-linear ways. 

We believe that films, as a visual narrative, have an important role in creating change in this world - in personal perception of things as well as public opinion

Many times, this is achieved through minority influence. Consequently, we are more passionate about social themes‫ from the past and present, told in new and creative ways.

 

Past productions include the acclaimed "Dolphin Boy” (2011), which was acquired by Disney Pictures for a potential remake as a feature film. 

Currently, the company is exploring, along side linear documentaries, virtual reality documentary experiences and web-based documentary story-telling. 

The Company is named after Micha Manassen, and all our stories are engraved with his loving smile and deep hawkish eyes.
