The Children’s House

In the summer of 2005, the Tel Aviv Museum holds an exhibition called “Communal Sleeping” in which kibbutz-born artists living in towns portray through their works their childhood experiences of communal sleeping. This is a film about childhood experiences, sensations, pains and memories surrounding the unique experience of growing up on a kibbutz.The soul searching confrontation of each one of these artists with parenthood, the past and the kibbutz institutions is relevant to this day in their capacity as parents, as individuals, and, of course, as creative artists.
