MORI, SHABAZY’A RIDDLE

Length 53 , Israel (2018) Director: Israela Shaar Meodedשפה: Heb

Only four biographical details are known about Rabbi Shalom Shabazi. We do not have any drawings describing his features. However, it seems that 400 years after his birth, Shabazy is still an extremely popular poet that keeps living in an entire community's collective soul. Who was Shabazy? A poet that committed filicide? Maybe a wedding singer looking for alms? Perhaps a fundamentalist Kabbalah scholar? An author whose primary influences came from Islam? Director Israela Sha’ar Meoded tries to answer these questions and embarks on a surprising and imaginative journey in the footsteps of the greatest poet of Jewish Yemen, who wrote over 800 poems, combining Arabic and Hebrew – a poet that has become a legend.
