'May 1973, I buy a camera. I want to start filming, by myself and for myself. Professional cinema does no longer attract me. To look for something else. I want to approach the everyday. Above all in anonymity. It takes time to learn how to do it.' With these words, David Perlov starts his epic film Diary. Shot over a period of three decades, first on 16mm and later on video, it is considered today the most striking work in Israeli documentary filmmaking.
