THE RED HOUSE

Israel (2017), 21 min.

Directed by Tamar Tal Anati

Produced by Amit Ginzler, Hadar Bakshy Shmeltzer, Arava Vineyards Production

This beautifully animated documentary voices the tales of The Red House, an extraordinary building, like no other in the Tel Aviv landscape. Built in 1924, the building’s many stories outline a century of life in the city. From the Lodzia Textile factory where socks were painstakingly woven by Polish immigrants, through a synagogue, to one of the most popular modern art galleries of the 1980s, The Red House has seen it all

Today, a moment before the lights are switched on again, following a long, meticulous restoration process; the film journeys through the many stories these walls have witnessed, with love and longing for a building that is coming back to life.
