”One of Seven” is a fascinating journey of journalist and film critic Goel Pinto’s life stations. Goel, born to an Oriental religious family, ‘one of seven’ children, in the ultra-Orthodox city of Bnei Brak, near Tel Aviv.
Going back to his childhood memories, the director, along with his mother Monique, peel off the layers of his past, in order to get to the root of the lack of identity that accompanies him, he tries to reconcile the different elements that shape his being: religion, ethnicity, homosexuality and the memory of the holocaust.
