Mikreh Isha / A Woman's Case (1970) DVD5
A man who works in publicity meets a woman modeling and together they spend a day in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. The model leads him to coffee houses and sexual parties, while the man takes her to a sculpturer's workshop so that he'll freeze her shape in cast. She's trying to launch him into the constant flow and complexities of time while he's trying to freeze her shape and set its Idea for future generations...

A unique, one of a kind film which tried (and managed) to deviate from the general currencies of Israeli cinema of its time, influenced by European cinematic modernism and by the French New Wave, especially from Godard.

Hillit Yeshurun (then Katmor) served as the expressive cinematic subject that served the fantasies of the director allowing him to discuss the destructive and violent relation formed in films between the male gaze and his female object. The film will be remembered as one of the most unique creations in Israeli cinema which tried to take it to places few have dared to go since then.
