Synopsis

During 50 years of writing Ephraim Kishon sold millions of books and won two Golden Globes, yet he could never write his own biography. At the age of 70 he invited journalist Yaron London to assist him. “KISHON” uses animation to ‘bring back to life’ Kishon’s persona and reenact the rare dialog.
