The Camera of Doctor Morris
For decades, Dr. Morris filmed his family. Their lives were captured on 8mm—years of births and deaths, joys and tragedies, dramas and quiet days spent in the sun—all unfolding in the heat of the Israeli desert. Long after his death, the footage is rediscovered. Through the archives of fully lived and filmed lives, combined with recounting from Morris family members themselves, their unusual and absorbing story unfolds.
WHY WE LIKE THIS FILM: An extraordinary family story that if it wasn”t true would be hard to believe. The film also reminds one of a National Geographic special as it shows Eilat when it was barely a town. We will have a live-over-Zoom Q&A with the filmmakers after the movie.
BONUS PROGRAMMING: Directors, writers, producers Meital Zvieli and Itamar Alcalay are expected to join us via Zoom for a live Q&A following the screening on November 4.
