In Israeli immigrant culture, the move from Europe to Israel is considered a defining, fundamental trauma. Writer and director, Aryeh (Leopold) Lahola, gave this experience a unique voice – both as a filmmaker, at a time when Israeli cinema was next to non-existent, and an esteemed writer in his native Slovakia. Lahola arrived in Israel in 1949. He tried to make Israel-centric films in Israel but ended up emigrating to further his career in Europe. The path the filmmaker took as a writer from Europe to Israel and back after the trauma of the Holocaust, is an unparalleled rarity and as such, deserves special attention. The film focuses on Lahola’s Israeli body of film work, his books, and the overall course of his life.
