About the Director:
Yair Qedar is a Documentary Filmmaker and Social activist. His recent films deal with the documentation of Hebrew culture while using traditional documentary filmmaking, free animation and graphic design computer technology. THE SEVEN TAPES is the second film in his independent series "the Hebrews". The first, "The Five Houses of Lea Goldberg", was shown around Israel and the World and won several prizes. Today Qedar is working on his next film – on the life and art of Israel's national poet – Bialik.
"The Seven Tapes" is a cinematic journey into the world of Yona Wallach, a legendary poet, who's radical life and poetry ended in an early age, leaving behind a myth and a trail of admirers. More than 25 years after her death, seven recorded tapes from her last interview are discovered. In these tapes, Wallach confesses on her life journey: her attraction to madness, her experiments with drugs, her relationship with god and about the dangers of writing. The film weaves her testimony with interviews, with rare archival footage from the sixties to the eighties, with her poems and with animation that revives Wallach's thoughts, images and visions. THE SEVEN TAPES is a troubling encounter with an exceptional artist, whose riddle remains unsolved to this day.
