An Israeli Filmmaker Who Found the Garden of Eden

Acclaimed filmmaker Ran Tal discusses his unusual filmmaking approach and how his subjects' backstories were his way forward.

After his successful 2007 documentary "Children of the Sun," director Ran Tal was in search of a subject for his new film. He found himself wandering in the area around Beit Hashita, the kibbutz in the Harod Valley where he was born and spent his childhood years. One day he was drawn to Gan Hashlosha, informally known as Sachneh, a national park near the kibbutz.
