Yair Qedar, Director of "4th Window" The tragic story of most successful Israeli writer, Amos Oz (English)

My guest is Yair Qedar, film director and creator of the Hebrews Project.

His film The Fourth window will be screened at JIFF the Jewish international Film Festival.

Behind the international success story of Amos Oz, a symbol of the Israeli conscience and a writer translated into 45 languages, lurked a double tragedy.

When he was 12 years old his mother committed suicide, and a few years before his death his daughter accused him of being physically and mentally violent, ending all communication him.

In a series of conversations with his latest biographer, presented in the film, weaving biographical passages, literature, and conversations with the main people in his life, Amos Oz tells his last story. (interview in English)
