The Zilber & Me

Roy Zilber has always felt trapped under the “family spell”: emotionally detached and musically obsessive, he grew up feeling awkward being the estranged son of a rock-star. But Ariel Zilber was not just your typical drugs-sex-rock’n’roller. Coming from an iconic musical family, he revolutionized Israeli music with his offbeat melodies and his eccentric behavior. And while his musical career took off, his personal and family life plunged into turmoil. As things began to change, Ariel began searching for his life’s meaning. Though the rift between father and son was always vast, it became more complicated when Ariel decided to become Ultra-Orthodox, supporting the messianic movement and right wing politics.... Determined to break the family spell, Roy began to confront his father and film their relationship, while researching his family’s pathology. Their efforts lead to the only common ground they share: music.
