Israel 2015, 67 min, Hebrew. Hebrew subtitles
The life story of Israeli poet and songwriter Tirza Atar (1941-1977) – a beloved and enigmatic part of Modern Hebrew Culture – is brought to the screen for the first time. Atar, the daughter of celebrated poet Nathan Alterman, composed hundreds of poems and song lyrics that captured the hearts of the audience, wrote popular children’s books and translated plays for the theater. Yet, her fragile beauty and her short, turbulent life remain shrouded in mystery many years after her tragic death at the age of thirty-six.
After the screening, a Q+A with the creator and director, Ari Davidovich, will be held.
