The space between the words

A quote from the Spring 2014 edition of Jewish Quarterly summarises what I have been trying to achieve with my film: “Omission from a narrative does not necessitate absence of awareness. Gabriel Josipovici, in The Singer on the Shore, describes some narrative gaps in the Bible as ‘vibrant silences’. Failing to tidy up details so that characters ‘live happily ever after’, he explains, leave the reader to face the paradoxical, conflicted and uncomfortable nature of real life. Only in romantic fiction or an ‘if only world’ are all loose ends tied.
