On This Happy Note

On This Happy Note delves into the personal and psychological landscape of Anat Gov, one of the most influential playwrights in Israeli theatre, as she faced a terminal diagnosis of cancer. Not maudlin, at times humorous, the film, produced almost a decade after her death, uses her own words, excerpts from her plays, and footage of her family and friends to trace Gov’s coming to terms with the end of her life and her wish to leave: a happy ending.

A Q&A follows the film with virtual guest Dr. Marissa Slaven, palliative care physician. (Israel 2021)

Presented in Hebrew with English subtitles.
