The Fourth Window
Behind the international success story of Amos Oz—the celebrated Israeli writer and intellectual whose works have been translated into 45 languages and who has been held up as a spokesperson and symbol of the Israeli conscience—lurked a tumultuous personal life marked by a double tragedy. When he was 12 years old, his mother committed suicide, and several years before his death, his daughter accused him of being physically and emotionally abusive to her during her childhood, ending all communication with him. Anchored by a series of conversations with Nurit Gertz, his friend and latest biographer, this engaging film weaves a tapestry of biography, literature, and conversations with significant people in his life, as Amos Oz tells his last story.
