Director Avi Nesher’s short film debut, whose shooting began just three days before the Yom Kippur War broke out and would only wrap eight months later, after the war had finished, is a surrealist short that follows story of a dull and dreary, smalltime ‘pencil pusher’ who accidentally kills a man and now has no idea what to do with the body. The film, which was a great success and was shown at festivals around the world, marks Nesher’s first ever collaboration with editor Isaac Sehayek – a creative partnership that has since persisted to this day.
