The film, which won the Best Documentary Award at the 2021 Jerusalem International Film Festival, provides a rare, singular glimpse into the tumultuous life of the late Ronit Elkabetz, one of the greatest actresses in the history of Israeli cinema.

Shlomi Elkabetz’s video diaries were filmed over three decades in Morocco, the Krayot, Tel Aviv, and Paris. They combine documentary and narrative elements as well footage from the film trilogy (“To take a Wife,” “Shiva,” and “Divorce”), which he wrote and directed with his sister and his co-creator, in a film that tells a story of love and separation, about a woman against time.
