One Last Bedtime Story (Sipur Acharon ve Day)

One Last Bedtime Story

For five generations Israeli children have asked their parents for one last bedtime story. Moving and insightful, Bedtime Stories explores how children learn about the world, and examines the past and present of Israeli children's literature. Writers, including Israel's founding mother of children's literature Miriam Levon Kipnis, Etgar Keret, literary heavyweight David Grossman, and musician and wordsmith Victoria Hanna, read from their books and those they read as children, delving into the experiences and evocations behind them.

Exploring more than children's literature, the series examines childhood itself and its history in Israel, and pieces together the development of an Israeli identity in which children's literature plays a crucial role in moulding language, place, and society.

JIFF will screen 2x 60 min episodes on the themes of Language and Friendship.
