The Accursed (Episode 1: Pinchas Sadeh)

NarrativeDocumentary | 2014 | 60 min.
Directed by: Hagai Levi

Created by Hagai Levi, 60 min, Narrative (2014)


In this innovative new series, Hagai Levi portrays four Israeli cultural heroes who fluctuated between genius and madness. These artists rebelled with rage and scorn at the bourgeois lifestyle and dominant culture, and endeavored to create an avant-garde alternative. The series poffers a glimpse into the spirit of Israel in the 1970s and 1980s, a time which seemed to offer one last chance to live an alternative lifestyle. The Accursed investigates  the idea of the total artist, examining whether and to what degree we are prepared to pay a steep price for the creative truth burning inside us. Through a combination of documentary footage and reenactments, episode 1 follows the author Pinchas Sadeh.
