Description

As a tribute to the late Amos Oz, TJFF presents this deeply poignant film made after the publication of his memoir, A Tale of Love and Darkness. The filmmakers follow the writer as he talks about his childhood in Jerusalem, his parents and his life on the kibbutz, as well as the relations between Jews of different origins, the peace process and politics in Israel. “This gorgeous documentary does justice to Oz’s rich imagination and political clarity… The wisdom and insight gleaned throughout amply demonstrate Oz’s singular authority.” (Deborah Kaufman, San Francisco Jewish Film Festival)
