Amos Oz is Israel’s best-known writer and a champion of peace with the Palestinians in a two-state solution, as a prominent member of Peace Now (Shalom Achshav) and a public intellectual. His work – a body of 40 books – has been translated into 45 languages and made into several films, including Natalie Portman’s A Tale of Love and Darkness. Among the many honors and awards he garnered are the Israel Prize, the Legion of Honour of France, the Goethe Prize, the Heinrich Heine Prize, and the Franz Kafka Prize.
The Fourth Window, Yair Qedar’s astonishing documentary, traces the contours of Amos Oz’s complex life, his extraordinary literary career, his political vision and leadership, and the painful elements in his personal biography with exquisite nuance and sensitivity.
