This beautifully animated documentary voices the tales of The Red House, an  extraordinary building in Tel Aviv. Built in 1924, the building’s many stories outline a century of life in the city. From the Lodzia textile factory where socks were painstakingly woven by Polish immigrants, through a synagogue, to one of the most popular modern art galleries of the 1980s, The Red House has seen it all. Today, a moment before the lights are switched on again, following a long, meticulous restoration process; the film journeys through the many stories these walls have witnessed, with love and longing for a building that is coming back to life.
