A versitle and exciting actress, Elkabetz personifies the hard-working international flavor of contemporary Israeli cinema. Elkabetz has appeared in numerous Israeli and international films – both as a director and actor. She is an Ophir Prize winner and continues to be a creative force in the Israeli film world.
Directed by: Nir Bergman
Elkabetz talks, with much emotion, about her childhood, about her fears and distress as a child who was different, and was worried about being accepted as different. Filmmaker Nir Bergman asks her to talk about the myth of her taking the character home with her and she explains that she draws intuition, emotion and identity from all of the parts that she has played and they stay with her. She also explains that she became a filmmaker in order to tell a story, her own story, from her own perspective, the way she sees it and that she writes the script from her subconscious, from suppressed memories.
