Carmel: Charting his own course through Israeli history, Gitai (who is only two years younger than Israel) becomes a lively symbol for the country itself. A child of the kibbutz, a young soldier wounded during the Yom Kippur War, a sometimes testy but always honest artist whose works are more often welcomed abroad than at home - Gitai has led a life as dense, rich, and complex as the nation of his birth.
Lullaby to my father: The film relates the story of Gitai's father, Munio Weinraub (1909-1970), an eminent Israeli architect. Weinraub was a student at the Bauhaus design and architecture school in the city of Dessau when Hitler closed the school in 1933. In May 1933, Weinraub was accused of "treason against the German people", sent to prison and later expelled from Germany. The film traces Munio's route from Poland to Germany, from Switzerland to Palestine.
