Synopsis: Eli Shamir is an artist , Born in the Jezreel Valley, he captures its ever-changing natural scenery and its people. Among esteemed conceptual painters on the art scene, Shamir has always been considered exceptional, but despite his lack of recognition in the world of art, he has never changed course.
Ben Shani fell in love with the artist, and with his camera, accompanied Shamir for 10 years, finding in him a source of inspiration for his own work.
Six years ago, the ‘plot-line’ of Shamir’s story reached a turning point when he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s. From that moment on, Shani’s film began following how the artist coped with the disease through his creations.
Is it disease or advancing age that carries Eli Shamir to a new burst of creativity?
