Dir: Herz Frank
LATVIA / 2002 / Russian, Hebrew / Color, B&W / Video / 105 min
An autobiographical work from Herz Frank, director of Once There Were Seven Simeons (Runner-up Prize in the International Competition at YIDFF’91). Images guide us through the countries in which he worked, interspersed with fragments from his earlier films: births, autopsies, circumcisions, prisoners awaiting execution and other shocking themes. These culminate in scenes from the director’s own heart surgery. The earnestness with which he continues to confront “life” and “death,” using himself as the subject, vividly brings traces of his 75-year journey to the surface.
