4 1 0

The National Library of Israel’s annual Docu.Text documentary film festival, a collaboration with Tel Aviv’s DocAviv Festival, returns to its in-person version August 15-19, with five days of screenings, concerts and tours.

Most films have English subtitles or are in English, while events will be in Hebrew and held according to all relevant coronavirus regulations.

The festival opens with a live soundtrack from the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra as it accompanies an open-air screening of “Queen Shoshana,” a documentary about singer Shoshana Damari, considered the first lady of Israeli song.

Other highlights of the first day of the festival include a tour of treasures from the Hannah Senesh Archival Collection that recently found its home at the National Library. A documentary film about Senesh will be followed by a discussion with her nephew.
