A Sonnet for Yuda

A visual cinematic tribute to the poems of Israeli poet Yehuda Amichai.

This project includes a collection of short video clips that vocally and visually illustrate the songs of one of the greatest Israeli poets of all time, Yehuda Amichai, who past away on September 22, 2000. Artists from different fields have joined the project and created their own interpretation of Amichai’s poems in versatile genres: Feature, documentary, video-art, video-dance, or music video. Most of the clips are abstract, some surreal, attempting to forward the feelings and sensations of the poems to the audience. Each clip is like a “Poem-Clip” that enables a live, surprising, concise touch between the poem and the audience, forming it into a ‘Piece of life’.

Director: Various directors

Producer: Micha Shagrir, Chana amichai

Production Company: Shiba communications inc.

Supporter(s): The New Fund For Cinema And Television, Avi-Chai Foundation, Mifal HaPais Council for the Culture and Arts
