Making a film about a filmmaker, Ran Tal takes on the filmic language of Gitai himself to tell the story of one of Israeli cinema's greatest exports. Gitai is an extraordinary, wide-ranging, and deeply personal filmmaker. His films reflect his personal demons and his private passions which he weaves into visual prose. Gitai had made both documentary and fiction films – and in this portrait, which follows the making of Gitai's film Carmel, the two become enmeshed.
