A Film by: Micha Shagrir
(Israel, 2000, 50 Minutes, Color, Hebrew, English subtitles)
Israel as seen through the eyes of David Rubinger, the laureate of the Israeli Prize for Photography and an internationally prominent photographer.
Rubinger began photographing in 1947, and since then he has documented famous leaders and exciting characters, and has been an eyewitness to the dramatic events that took place in Israel throughout the years.
