Shir Libeynu Jewish Film Series: Footnote

  • 1:45
  • 519 Community Centre, 519 Church St., Toronto, Rm 301

FOOTNOTE (An Israeli Film with English subtitles)

Eliezer (Shlomo Bar Aba), the father, has labored for years without much recognition. He takes great pride in once having been mentioned in a footnote of a book by legendary scholar. Uriel (Lior Ashkenazi), the son, is one of those facile popularizers to whom everything comes easily. The film opens in a teeth-grating ceremony where the son is receiving a prestigious prize, and his father is seated stony-faced in the audience. Uriel goes out of his way to praise the old man, but this serves only to reflect on the old man’s obscurity, and Eliezer knows it.
