Poli's Final Sketch

A Film by: Ofer Naim
(Israel, 2012, 55 Minutes, Color, Hebrew, English subtitles)

The movie reveals the relationships he had with his wives and children, including his daughter,actress Yael Poliakov, who gave us a glimpse into their lives in the series "Hakol Dvash".

His friends from "Ha'Gashash Ha'Hiver" and from showbiz, tell little anecdotes about him and, using clips from the best of "Ha'Gashash Ha'Hiver", they give a rare glimpse into the life of the man who portrayed so many famous and beloved characters, while he himself remained in their shadows.

The Void that Poli left in the hearts of his fellow "Ha'Gashash Ha'Hiver" bandmates and the hearts of his mass following is evident in the 2012 Israeli blockbuster The World is Funny.
