Miriam’s Poetry

Miri Ben Simhon was born halfway between Morocco and Israel, in the city of Marseilles. She died halfway between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, at the age of 46, in a car accident that looked more like a suicide.  In her life and poetry she wandered restlessly, in buses, taxis and hitchhiking, feeling out of place. In a rare recording from 1988, discovered by accident, Miri reads a touching love letter, dedicated to the poet Meir Wieseltier. This love letter constitutes the heart of the film and exposes a central axis of her poems and her wounded soul.
