In his late teens, he studied in the Ponevezh yeshiva, one of the most famous Talmudic yeshivas. During that time, he began his long process of secularization. Eleven years ago, at age 25, he left the religious community, became secular, and moved to Tel Aviv.There he took film courses for a year. My Father My Lord is his first feature film.

My Father My Lord / David Volach

The film introduces the world of a respected rabbi, his devoted wife and their young son. Τhe rabbi leads a community whose existence is based on complete faith in God and adherence to laws dictated by their religion. As the family prepares for an anticipated journey to the Dead Sea, the film observes the father as he guides his young son, always teaching him the laws of their faith, while his dutiful wife smiles in agreement. Their trip is a pleasant one, but when the rabbi’s need to pray gets in the way of his family’s welfare, tragedy seems to be lurking.
