"In a series of tableaus, a regal figure gazes over her lavish estate. Amidst the elaborate flora of her garden or the pristine china in her dining room, she appears as an elegant mirage — and a symbol of timeless, enduring femininity."

Israel 2017, Narrative-documentary short

Everlasting MOM is an independent production made by myself as a director, producer and writer along with my dear talented colleagues - my long-time cinematographer Daniel Miller and editor Guy Nemesh, and finally my dear MOM - Meira Nechemya, a true inspiration and enigma. The film was shot in my mother's house in a Jerusalem suburb in Israel, with my mother as the only character on set. All the people in the crew had worked on this film voluntarily. We shot the film in super 16 mm and did the processing in London.
