Experience an intimate and rare portrait of Israeli author David Grossman, whose writing has been translated into 45 languages and garnered him a myriad of accolades, including the UK’s International Booker Prize. While Grossman rarely gives interviews, in Grossman he allows viewers into the depths of his workroom and shares his insights on camera, revealing the delicate and complex connection between his novels and his personal life, including the death of his son during the 2006 Lebanon War.
In this tender and insightful portrait of a captivating subject, director Adi Arbel observes Grossman lecturing, conducting research, and speaking eloquently on the nexus of art and life, concluding that “the only way we can contemplate the emptiness of death, and at the same time feel the fullness of life, is by writing.”
