Israel 2019, 55 min, Hebrew, English and Hungarian, Hebrew & English subtitles.
The film tells the story of Mrs. Lea Gottlieb, the legendary designer, founder, and owner of the Gottex swimwear empire. A woman full of contradictions, Gottlieb always knew how to recover from crises – she survived the Holocaust, established a small factory in Israel, and gained phenomenal success abroad. The film follows Mrs. G’s incredible creativeness alongside her dominant personality, her complex relationships with her two daughters, who both worked for the family business, and her unbridled passion, for which she paid a tragic price.
Director: Dalit Kimor
