Ephraim Kishon was one of the great writers who shaped the Israeli essence through their work. Over 50 years, Kishon published dozens of satirical columns, books, plays, and films. He sold millions of books and was nominated twice for the Academy Awards. Yet he could never write his own biography. At the age of 70, he invited college journalist Yaron London to assist him in unfolding his life story.
Kishon uses animation to breathe life into the author’s persona and reenact the rare dialog, alongside intimate interviews, rare footage, and 8mm home movies.
