Special events following the exhibition The Last Photograph / Children of the Sun (2007)
Docu-Evening: Ran Tal’s Films
“The Last Photograph” is a first-of-its-kind exhibition at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art, comprised of a documentary film by Ran Tal. The viewers encounter the archive of the father of Israeli photojournalism, Micha Bar-Am, disassembled and re-edited into a multi-channel video installation. The exhibition raises a renewed debate about the set frame of narrative cinema, alongside a discussion of the gap between the documentary material presented to the viewers and the words of the interviewees who look back. A unique series of encounters following the exhibition brings together director Ran Tal and the Museum visitors.
At each encounter one of Tal’s films will be screened, preceded by a preliminary talk by the director.
Viewers are invited to an independent tour of the exhibition before each encounter.
