The Accursed (Episode 4: Aviva Uri)

Directed by: Hagai Levi
60 Minutes, 2014, Documentary

The artist Aviva Uri may well have been the most important and influential woman in the history of modern Israeli art. Her relatively late breakthrough in the mid-1970s served to inspire a new generation of artists, who venerated her. It was in these years that Hagai began to document her and her larger-than-life love affair with her elderly husband, the artist Moshe Hendler. Together, they were a tempestuous couple, whose whole life was art. Over the years, however, more and more dark secrets were revealed about Aviva’s life and the price she and those closest to her paid for her total dedication to her art, up until her tragic death.
