Breaking the wall

Directed by: Yitzhak Halutzi
66 Minutes, 2012

 The film uncovers the personality of Dr. Vicki Shiran, a feminist and Mizrahi-born leader who led all major social struggles in the past 3 decades until her untimely death 8 years ago. Occasionally a person’s biography can faithfully mirror the spirit of a social struggle. The life story of Shiran is also the story of the rise, and some say the fall, of the social struggle for equality that characterized Israel in the past and still goes on in a different manner to this day.
