The premiere of the first documentary that tells the tragic story of the life of the Israeli writer Amos Oz, with his stories
Amos Oz was one of the most well-known contemporary writers with millions of readers in the world, while in Israel he was also an important figure of public life and media.
Sharmi i tij në komunikim dhe talenti i përkyer në lidhjen e fjalëve e bënë që të mos ketë rival dhe të ngjallë kuriozitet në të gjithë botën. Oz ndërroi jetë pasi humbi betejën me kancerin në vitin 2018 dhe një nga amanetet e tij të fundit ishte që një mike e tij t’i tregonte botës historinë e jetës së tij, mendimet e tij të vërteta dhe intime. Pikërisht këto detaje janë publikuar në dokumentarin “Dritarja e katërt” me regjisor Yair Kedar që do të ketë premierën e saj ndërkombëtare në Festivalin e 23-të Dokumentarëve në Selanik që po zhvillohet këtë javë në qytetin e dytë më të madh të Greqisë, por edhe “online”.
The details that this documentary reveals speak of a tragic and difficult life. At the age of 12 Oz's mother committed suicide, while a few years before she passed away she was accused of physical and psychological violence by her daughter who ended their relationship and never met her again. In his conversations with his biographer, Oz denies the allegations, but says life traumas helped him shape his unique literary personality and have a different perspective on life.
His mother was a man who left a special impression on him. She was originally from Poland and was educated while studying at university (a rarity for the time), but unfortunately struggled for many years with depression, until the age of 40 when she ended her life.
This death marked the life of the writer and made him close in on himself and experiment with short stories and passages where he expressed feelings and tried to give meaning on paper to what he failed to conceive in life.
His father was a professor and being surrounded by books has always tended towards a career that has to do with writing and publishing. But he also felt the need to rebel and because of this he left the childhood home as a teenager and worked in manual labor, living the years of early youth in complete poverty. He worked in agriculture and as a driver, however he always wrote in his spare time and did not share the intention to make writing a career. The manual work experience gave him some ideas and in his early works there are many references about hard work, poverty and the figure of the worker.
His success was almost immediate. Everything he published sold in record time, and more and more publications required writing.
The documentary in question is the only documented moment when Oz can respond to his daughter's accusations of violence and explain the causes of his sometimes inappropriate behavior.
