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 revolutionised the way Israelis took, developed and related to pictures. Kobi Farag, the scion of this famous 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. An important exploration of Israeli social history and packed with fascinating interviews and archival materials, Photo Farag explores the often destructive forces of a family determined to leave its mark on society.

Followed by a Q&A with director Kobi Farag.
