Gripping and moving real life story of the first Iraqi-Jewish family to become a household name in Israel. Emigrating to Israel from Baghdad in the 1950s, the Farag family built a hugely successful photography business which revolutionized the way Israelis took, developed and related to pictures. Kobi Farag, a scion of the famous photographer clan, traces the story of the ten brothers and sisters, who despite their amazing professional achievements failed to protect the family from a painful process of disintegration. Based on fascinating interviews and archival materials, Photo Farag explores the often destructive forces of a family determined to leave its mark on Israeli society.
