Lahola

For immigrants to Israel, the transition from Europe to the Middle East is axiomatically a trauma. Author and director Arieh (Leopold) Lahola gave voice to this ordeal through his films at a time when so few Israeli films were made, and he became a well-known author in Slovakia. Lahola came to Israel in 1949 and tried to make films in Israel, about Israel, but later left to continue working in Europe. This route, Europe to Israel and back to Europe, taken by a noted filmmaker and author after the trauma of the Holocaust, is in itself rare and worthy of our attention. This film concentrates on Lahola’s Israeli films, his books, and his remarkable life.
