Recommend this film

Dan Geva takes us in a cinematic journey to the recesses of the photographed memory in Chris Marker's 1960 impressionist film about Israel, ''Description d'un combat'' (Description of a Struggle), which won the 'Golden Bear' at the 1961 Berlin Festival. Geva creates a poetic and philosophic cinematic dialogue with the original text, using images and words from that film, and then adds his own in a process that reveals that the Israel of today is the country, which the French Master could not even have imagined.
