about us


From 1993 to 2001, Matthew Palm was a producer, director, writer and researcher at Chuck Olin Associates, during which time he produced, directed and wrote numerous documentary, commercial and corporate projects.

Mr. Palm's final project for Olin Associates was working as director and co-producer of the hour-long documentary IS JERUSALEM BURNING? Myth, Memory and the Battle of Latrun. The documentary is a penetrating examination of the fateful battles of Latrun - fought during Israel's 1948 War of Independence - and offers up a challenging exploration of the myths those battles spawned...and what they mean for Israel today.
