An episode from a series of interviews with artists, produced by the Israel Film Service in collaboration with the Israeli Council of Culture and Art.
Monumental works of his stand in many places in the country, and he has been recognized both in Israel and abroad. However, in conversation with him, the prominent characteristics of the sculptor Yechiel Shemi are actually modesty and a rejection of pomposity. When he tries to quote a laudatory critique written about him in ‘The New Yorker,’ for example, he fails – because he is overcome by a bashful attack of laughter.
In this short film, Meni Pe’er visits the artist in his studio in Kibbutz Kabri and learns from him about his career.
