Directed by: Bella Baram
This is the story of a group of Israelis who devote their free time to painting and sculpting. Featured in the film are industrialist and founder of Israeli fashion chain Polgat, Israel Polack; Beilinson Hospital’s (now Rabin Medical Centre) Professor Dinzman; Sister Abraham of Jerusalem’s Kidane Mehret Ethiopian Orthodox Church; Professor Wexler of Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital, Jerusalem; philosopher Ben Ami Scharfstein; architect Yisrael Lotan, and late actor Shaike Ophir. The cast’s own personal stories and the ways in which painting and art help them grapple with their work, allow director Bella Baram to paint a very distinct, particular portrait of Israel.
