A Sonnet for Yuda - Shagrir Collection

Production Notes

Produced with the help of the AviChai Foundation and broadcast on Israel Channel One after poet Yehuda Amichai’s death. 14 short films were produced, each one based on a different Amichai poem, and each by a different filmmaker. Some of the filmmakers were just starting out, like Yoni Ziegler, and others were veteran filmmakers like Slava and Lina Chaplin.

Description

A Visual and Cinematic Tribute to the Poems of Yehuda Amichai
A Sonnet for Yuda attempts to translate into a visual and cinematic language a few of the poems of Yehuda Amichai, one of Israel’s most prominent poets, who died in 2000. Several filmmakers joined together for this project, creating their own interpretation of Amichai’s poems, using various genres: fiction, documentary, video art, video dance and so on. Each film is like a poem in film, which creates a living, surprising and condensed contact between the poem and the viewers.
