Call Me Bullie (Kraa Li Bullie)
“…a subtle, exciting film about the life and works of A.B Yehoshua. This film is a fine companion to a great writer” – Amos Oz
Hailed by The New York Times as ‘Israel’s Faulkner,’ and the recipient of the Israel Prize for Hebrew literature, A. B. Yehoshua is one of Israel’s most beloved authors. In this intimate portrait of the man known to his friends as ‘Bullie’, director Omri Lior offers invaluable insight into Yehoshua’s writing process and the meticulous research undertaken for each novel. Weaving together film adaptations with personal testament, Lior brings key scenes from the books to life, investing them with new meaning in light of the personal anecdotes that Yehoshua shares in his interviews with the director.
