In 1921, six dead bodies were found near the Red House between Tel Aviv and Jaffa. One was the body of Y.H. Brenner, a brilliant author, the sharp critic of his generation, a man of ambiguous sexuality and the characteristics of a raging prophet; he was well known throughout the Jewish world. An official report, written but sealed shortly after these events, was discovered only recently. It features in this film, along with animated sequences by David Polonsky ("Waltz with Bashir”), conversations with Brenner scholars, rare period stills, and selections from his works...The official selection at the Jerusalem Film Festival in 2012, and winner of best film for 2012 and best soundtrack for 2012 in the Israeli documentary film competition for 2012. The film was supported by the Israeli film service, channel 8 and the Rabinowitz foundation for the arts.
