Jam Session

The rise and fall of Balfour Halfon, the director’s father and owner of the 778 Beit Yitzhak jam factory, from his days as assistant and driver to Fay Isaacs, maker of the jams and the company’s original owner, through his meteoric rise as owner of 778, and to the company’s eventual bankruptcy – the end of his life’s work. His son, Eyal, tells the story of the factory’s last few months. It is the story of the Israeli industry – a story of disappointment, despite commercial success.
