Interview with the director Eitan Anner of “The Good Person”, interviewer Nikolaj Nikitin
“Everyone on set is an artist.” - Eitan Anner
"The Good Person" tells a fable of a 38-year-old Sharon, an ambitious, workaholic, art-house film producer. Suddenly, she finds herself on the brink of bankruptcy and so she sees an opportunity to secure her future by making a deal with the 59-year-old Uzi – once a grandmaster of cinema turned into an ultra-Orthodox rabbi. Sharon gets caught up in a whirlwind that threatens to destroy her mentally and financially, and endangers her relationships with those she holds dearest.
