The Fourth Window
Behind the international success of Amos Oz, a symbol of Israeli conscience and a writer whose books are translated into 45 languages, lurked a double tragedy. When he was 12-years-old his mother committed suicide, and a few years before his death his daughter accused him of being physically and mentally violent, ending all communication with him. A series of conversations with his latest biographer presented in the film, weaves biographical passages, literature and conversations with the main people in his life, as Amos Oz tells his last story.
The Last Chapter of A B Yehoshua is a loving portrait of the prominent Israeli writer who died recently (June 2022). Dealing with a terminal illness, widowhood, and loneliness, Yehoshua does not for one moment give up his joie de vivre, faces death with unflinching honesty, and embraces a new book.
Yair Qedar is a filmmaker and lgbtq-rights activist. Creator of the series The Hebrews – a documentary project on the Hebrew and Jewish literary canon, centered on filmic portraits of writers from 17th century to recent days.
Ricki Neuman is a writer and journalist.
