Description:

The film is a cinematic portrait of Jewish-Moroccan Israeli-based renowned poet Erez Bitton, and of his acclaimed poetry. A successor of the legacies of North-African poetizing and a pioneering predecessor of Mizrahi poetry in Israel, Bitton travels through the important landmarks of his, his family’s, and his generation’s, lived histories, shares from his experiences as a blind person, and reads from his musical, critical, multifaceted poetry. Following the screening of the film, a discussion will take place with Sami Shalom Chetrit, Dr. Amor and Dr. Freiwald. This special event is part of the 31st Annual Meeting of the Association for Israel Studies, hosted by the Azrieli Institute of Israel Studies at Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec.
