Resource: Amos Oz – The Film

Greek director Stelios Charalampopoulos has crafted an engaging and intimate portrait of the acclaimed Israeli iconoclastic and internationally celebrated author Amos Oz, nominated for this year's Nobel Peace Prize. Shot partly in Arad, Jerusalem, and in Salonica, Greece the film traces Oz's personal background: his childhood, his adolescence on kibbutz where he met his wife, the sole editor of his works, his family tragedies including his mother's suicide and his resulting inclination to narrate family chronicles. This poignant piece allows the viewer to enter the world of one of Israel's most fiercely eloquent proponents of co-existence and the Middle East Peace Process.
