This eloquent and dynamic documentary is based on the autobiographical book A Tale of Love and Darkness. Directors Masha Zur Glozman and Yonathan Zur delve into the persona of Oz, picking up on the energy generated by his elegant response to the friction between the personal and political aspects of his life, they offer a rare window of opportunity to experience the world through the literary gaze of this great Israeli author; a man of whom it has been said, knows Israeli society inside and out, especially since he is an outsider, in a very profound sense, of all worlds. This is a journey that follows in the footsteps of the biographical, political and philosophical issues he has personally encountered and impacted on his life.
