Biography
A director and scriptwriter, he grewup in Rishon Lezion, Israel. At the age of 18 he got involved in “Ha Noar Haoved Ve Halomed,” a socialist youth movement. At 25 he left the movement and moved to Jerusalem, where he worked as a social-financial journalist at Kol Ha’ir magazine. Later on he worked at Tel Aviv’s Ha’ir magazine. Two years later he joined the TV program “Uvda” (the Israeli equivalent of “60 Minutes”) as a journalist and worked for Ma’ariv– one of the largest daily newspapers in Israel. He is a graduate of the Film & Television Department at Tel Aviv University. His first short film, Reds, won the first prize for Best Drama at the Jerusalem Film Festival 2007. Epilogue is his first feature film.

Epilogue / Amir Manor

The requiem of a common journey composed by the heroes themselves: Hayuta and Berl, an Israeli elderly couple, the last of the Romantics, fail to adjust to the modern age. They live in a small appartment, surrounded by memorabilia – the remains of a lifetime. They stand for a generation of intellectuals who dreamed of better days. The society they live in will soon collapse – and so will their aging bodies. Alienated and miserable, they feel detached from an ever-changing world. A touching portrait of an era, filmed in a delicate fashion, demonstrating excellence in the use of the language of the medium. The couple’s journey towards the end brings to the fore virtues and morals undermined by rapid social changes.
