The film follows Czech photographer Josef Koudelka on his journey photographing Israel and Palestine from one enigmatic and visually spectacular location to the next. In each location - soon to become a new “Koudelka Photo” - a scene unfolds, gradually introducing us to Koudelka’s method of working, his perception of the world he is documenting and the people he encounters. A fascinating dialogue emerges between the moving images Baram films and Koudelka’s still photographs, as Baram places the photographer in his own breathtaking compositions. Austere images of landscape divided by concrete walls and barbed wire reveal the tragic absurdity of the infamous conflict.


Director: Gilad Baram
