“ … a poignant emotional journey into a vanishing childhood.” – Indian Cine Film Festival Jury
In the 1950s, the most popular children’s books in Israel were from the series Children of the World. The books, which remain in print over six decades later, featured heroes and beloved characters who were depicted by actual children in real photographs. But who were these children, and what became of them? This Ophir Award (Israeli Oscar) finalist sets out to find the answers and rediscover the collective childhood memories shared by a generation of devoted readers.
