Dan Ben-Amotz was the epitome of “Israeliness”. He was a prolific and accomplished creator who constantly reinvented himself, while carrying an entire society, language, and culture that were not yet fully formed. In April 1989, just before undergoing an experimental treatment for cancer, Ben-Amotz held a “farewell party.
D.B.A returns to that mythological goodbye party to tell the story of an influential icon who has since been tossed, with his friends, into the dustbin of history.
