A WOMAN’S CASE (1969), ISRAEL – JACQUES MORY KATMOR
A landmark in Israeli cinema: one of the first avant-garde experiments, ‘A woman’s Case’ proposes woman as metaphor, the film occupies three levels: a feature documentary collage, a cinematic essay laden with references to history of art, literature and pop culture and an experiment to translate drawing into film.
An advertising man meets a model in the studio of sculptor, they embark on a journey together – for one day – through different spaces in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem: A hotel, a stairway, an apartment, streets, a cafe, a restaurant, a nightclub a collaged space connecting pop culture, Surrealism, death, eroticism and violence. The film’s soundtrack was written by ‘The Churchills’ a seminal Israeli psychedelic garage band.
This film represented Israel for the first time in 1969 at The Venice Film Festival.
