This video was inspired by the book “Badenheim, 1939” by Aharon Appelfeld
Producer | script | director | editor: Shachaf Dekel
One video from a video series i created which was inspired by the writing of Aharon Appelfeld (Israeli prize winner for literature and holocaust survivor). The video series is an attempt to create a dialog between literature and video art and an attempt to give an artistic expression to the subjective experience of the Holocaust victim in the most crucial moment of coping with his tragic fate, like in Appelfeld books.
Professional theater actors participate in the videos and the music for the trilogy is an original score by a famous Israeli musician Karni Postel
