Marek Rozenbaum: A Tribute

Film producers will probably never be considered as a creative force to follow, as are directors or actors, and yet film producer Marek Rozenbaum, with a career spanning over four decades, is a significant and creative factor in Israeli cinema. The list of titles he produced is not only long and glorious - more than fifty feature films alongside documentaries and TV series - but a more careful look, shows courage and an imprint that, once again, Rozenbaum was able to give opportunity to the most original and interesting voices in Israeli cinema of the last decades
