Simon Hesera was a Jewish-French advert, film, and theatre director. Hesera directed two feature films; both of which were initially shelved, on release: the first was A Day at the Beach (1970), for which Roman Polanski had written the script, and the second – Ben Gurion Remembers (1972), which spent the next 43 years mothballed and gathering dust until it was eventually restored and shown on Israel’s public broadcaster, Channel 1, in 2015. In theatre, Hesera directed the play, Diary of a Madman, based on a short story by Nikolai Gogal, which had a successful run at the Haifa Theatre.
