A Chinese film crew has begun filming what is supposed to a blockbuster movie of a romantic comedy in the Holy Land and which will expose Israel to the Chinese, to the delight of the Tourism Ministry and the tourist industry.

The ministry is investing more than $80,000 to help promote the film, with expectations that the exposure of Israel to Chinese movie-goers will attract them to visit.

The artists worked with the Ministry of Tourism to arrange the filming of the movie “Old Cinderella,” starring Zhang Jingchu. “It’s a great pleasure to be here in Jerusalem and in Israel,” the actress says. “It’s amazing.”

Approximately 15 minutes of the 95-minute film will be filmed in Israel.

In recent years, more and more foreign film companies are choosing Israeli settings for their works. Jerusalem, the Dead Sea and other locales provide a dramatic and visually rich landscape for feature films.
