"The Meshulam Riddle"

KAN11

A three-episode docu-series that unfolds one of the most difficult social issues in Israel. In 1994, Rabbi Uzi Meshulam and his followers stayed at his home in Yehud, with women, children and firearms, and demanded an investigation into the affair of the disappearance of Yemeni children. For 50 days, police forces besieged the house for fear of escalation, until the bitter end.

"The Meshulam Riddle" combines plot drama with documentary archive footage and testimonies of the main characters who accompanied Uzi Meshulam in his life. The series provides first-hand evidence of many of those involved in the affair over the years and of people who have dealt and continue to deal with the story of the disappearance of the children of East Yemen and the Balkans in the 1950s - a story that continues to stir the country 70 years later.
