Zohar The Return
The poster boy of Israeli avant garde cinema, Uri Zohar, left the entertainment world to become an ultra-orthodox rabbi. Decades later, he is back at the helm, to make a new film. For the first time, he shares his own life story. The riveting portrait of a filmmaker-turned-rabbi is spiced up by scenes from his previous films in which the hero, often played by young Zohar himself, would always find himself battling his inner demons.
