On The Way Back

Elyasaf Kowner’s work, On The Way Back, deals with one of the central fears and experiences of childhood- those getting lost. Kowner constructs the work alphabetically. Alphabet is a system that introduces the child into language. On the other hand, it enables and teaches him or her to orientate in the world. Yet, on the other handby giving names to things, it establishes a gap between the thing or experience and their representation- the word, the language. Knower’s work reflects this ambivalence regarding language: the young girl gropes her way both in the physical space and in the linguistic domains. Language helps her put in order her thoughts and sort them according to patterns, but at the same time also restricts and blocks these very thoughts.

Director: Elyasaf Kowner

Producer: Chen Scheinberg, Ben Hagari

Production Company: The New Fund for Cinema and TV, Noga Communivation - Logi Channel

Film Name in Hebrew: בדרך חזרה
