Ten renowned Israeli writers shine a spotlight on Israel 70 years after its founding. Their work echoes the issues their country faces: the conflict, the weight of the past, the Zionist project, religion, the army, and social tensions.
Featuring interviews with literary giants such as Amos Oz, David Grossman, and Avraham B. Yehoshua, this fascinating documentary offers an original and subjective portrait of Israel, using literature as a means to comprehend geopolitics.
