Cambridge Forum for Jewish Studies


Film: The Five Houses of Lea Goldberg


This event is a collaboration with Jewish Book Week 2014 and brings

Israeli film-maker Yair Qedar to Cambridge with his documentary, The

Five Houses of Lea Goldberg (2011). The film is dedicated to the work

and life of one of Israel’s best-loved poets, Lea Goldberg. Qedar’s

lyrical approach matches the magical and innovative use of language

that characterised his subject.


The film will be followed by Q & A with the director, Yair Qedar, an

Israeli filmmaker, civil-rights activist and cultural critic. His

academic background in 20th century Hebrew literature propelled him

into his life’s work: The Hebrews— a trans-media project on the Hebrew

literary canon, centered around filmic portraits of the great Hebrew
