A Tale That Begins With Three Rooms

A Tale That Begins With Three Rooms

1933. Dr. Karl Schwartz is invited to Israel by Tel Aviv mayor Meir Dizengoff, to be appointed director of the first art museum in Palestine – The Tel Aviv Museum of Art. Schwartz left Berlin and arrived in Tel Aviv to discover, much to his surprise, that the museum in question consisted of nothing more than three rooms in the mayor’s own private residence. A TALE BEGINNING WITH THREE ROOMS revolves around the establishment of the Tel Aviv Museum, and delves into the chilling connection between the development of the museum and the horrifying tragedies endured by the European Jewry in the 1930s-1940s.
Produced in the framework of a special joint film project of the NFCT and the Tel-Aviv Museum of Art, in celebration of the Museum’s 90th anniversary.
