Perfect for reflecting on Israel’s 75-year history, director Ran Tal’s (Children of the Sun, The Museum) riveting documentary chronicles the sixty-year career of Israel’s most acclaimed photojournalist, Micah Bar-Am, who, for decades, was the country’s photo correspondent for The New York Times. Composed entirely from a trove of over 500,00 photos collected by Bar-Am and his archivist wife, Orna, the film seamlessly intertwines an historical narrative of a country with Bar-Am’s personal reflections on the psychological and personal toll of bearing witness to multiple wars. Winner of DocAviv’s Kedar Foundation Award for a film inspired by Israel’s history and society, this documentary offers an intimate portrait of the artist, a meditation on memory, and a testament to the power of the photograph.

“This documentary captivated me with its amazing storytelling and breathtaking visuals – unlike anything I’ve seen before!”
