Directed by: Ran Tal
Production: Department of Film and Television, TAU

An intimate portrait of late director, George Obadiah, made when Tal was a student at Tel Aviv University’s Department of Film and Television Studies. In the film, the immensely popular Obadiah who was loved by audiences and loathed by critics, sits down with Tal for an on-camera conversation, just two years before his death. Elderly, poorly, and frustrated that he is no longer making films, Obadiah opens up about his love of filmmaking and the principles that have steered him throughout his professional career.
