The story of "A Tale of Love and Darkness" is set in Jerusalem in the 1940-es. It is based on childhood memories of Amos Oz, the celebrated Israeli author, who years later (in 1967) would become one of the first voices advocating for a two-state solution of the Arab-Israeli conflict.
— says Vanya Bouden, Festival program director.
The film, which is being presented within "Context" competition category, will be shown in Russia for the first time. At the 2015 Cannes Film Festival it was one of the contenders for the Palme d’Or.
