Episode Details

(2000/Israel, 54 minutes, fiction/in Hebrew with English subtitles.)

What happens when a television producer invites his fellow Israelis to bring him their personal stories with the promise that, if it measures up as the stuff of movies, a film could result. The sometimes comic, sometimes tragic consequence is a series of encounters with the respondents, all highly vocal, with very definite ideas on how they might be portrayed on the screen. One, a young woman raped by her father, insists that she is the only one capable of playing the part she lived. She learns otherwise. The hour-long program artfully moves among truth, fiction, drama and documentary. (A film by Eyal Halfon.)
