Call Me Bullie / Kraa Li Bullie
Hailed by The New York Times as “Israel’s Faulkner,” and the recipient of the Israel Prize for Hebrew literature, A. B. Yehoshua is one of Israel’s most beloved authors. In this intimate portrait of the man known to his friends as “Bullie,” director Omri Lior offers invaluable insight into Yehoshua’s writing process and the meticulous research he undertakes for each novel. Using clips from film adaptations of his novels, Lior brings key scenes from the books to life, investing them with new meaning in light of the personal anecdotes that Yehoshua shares in his interviews with the director.
