The sudden death of the esteemed actor, writer, director and icon Ronit Elkbetz shocked Israel’s cultural world as much as it shocked Ronit’s fans around the world. Her brother and long-term collaborator, director Shlomi Elkabetz, embarks on a fictional journey between Morocco, Israel, and Paris where they had relocated. Based on family archives and excerpts from the Vivian Amsalem film trilogy written and directed by Ronit and Shlomi Elkabetz, the Black Notebooks invite us into the intimacy of a Jewish-Arab family, a family of uprooted exiles, in an imaginary story where a brother and sister revisit the past and the present to defy an implacable future.
