Movie Poster – Assi Dayan’s Second Movie as Director – Chagiga LaEnayim, 1975

Movie poster for Assi Dayan and Naftali Alter's Chagiga LaEnayim (A Feast for the Eyes). The film's production was completed in 1973, but no cinema was willing to screen it. Only in 1975 did Menahem Golan find a way to help Dayan and Alter distribute the film.
Despite not being screened in cinemas the film entered several international film festivals and won critical acclaim, including the San Remo special award. The film's cast included Yosef Shiloach, Talia Shapira, Dori Ben Ze'ev, Mordechai Ben Ze'ev, Avner Hizkiyahu and Miriam Gavrieli. For Shiloach, usually a supporting actor, this is a rare leading role, for which he received rave reviews.
The film is a bittersweet comedy about a failed poet who arrives at a desolated town, planning to commit suicide. The locals save his life, but since they mistake him for an important poet, they believe that if he does commit suicide in their town, it will become a place of pilgrimage for his admirers.
Eventually the film flopped at the cinemas and both Dayan and Alter accumulated large debts. Furthermore, due to a legal dispute as to its distribution, the film was never issued on DVD, and was forgotten in spite of its importance.
The poster features a processed photo from film and the writing: "Finally allowed to be screened! Yosef Shiloach in Assi Dayan and Naftali Alter's film - Chagiga La'Enayim."
