Shoshani’s theory about the truth

Professor Shalom Rosenberg says about his Master Mister Shoshani: “He had a theory about the mystification of the truth. He thought that one should play cards with the truth, that truth maintains mysterious ties with imposture, that it can only be seized obliquely, by contortion, by surprise, by concealment, by misunderstanding. He liked anonymity, despised the honors, felt free and unattached. Somehow, he was a religious Jewish anarchist.” (in the book of Shlomo Malka about Shoshani).

Professeur Shalom Rosenberg dit de son Maitre Monsieur Chouchani : “Il avait une théorie sur la mystification de la vérité. Il pensait qu’il faut jouer aux cartes avec la vérité, que la vérité entretient des liens mystérieux avec l’imposture, qu’elle ne peut être saisie que de manière oblique, par la contorsion, par la surprise, par la dissimulation, par le malentendu. Il aimait l’anonymat, méprisait les honneurs, se sentait libre et sans attaches. D’une certaine manière, c’était un juif religieux anarchiste.” (rapporté dans le livre de Shlomo Malka sur Chouchani).

The Shoshani Riddle - the wanderer who knew it all
Dear friends in the world, I am thrilled to announce: here is my new movie! “THE SHOSHANI RIDDLE – the wanderer who knew it all” will finally be released and premiered at the Haifa International Film Festival!
10 years in the making!! extensive research all over the world, filming hundreds of testimonies, including unique secrets and discoveries about this so special character who was the mysterious mentor of Elie Wiesel and many others.
A wanderer, a genius, a legend…
It was an amazing journey and I hope you will enjoy this movie as much as I did in the making of it, during this exhausting but exciting journey. To my eyes, this is more than a film, this is a quest of meaning in life. I hope that all the messages conveyed in this film on “Monsieur Chouchani”, it’s world views, stories, ideas and emotions will have an impact. Thank you all for your support and patience.
Thank you also to the wonderful artists who worked with me on it.
“The Shoshani Riddle” will also be broadcasted on Israeli TV Kan11 and elsewhere. More will follow soon.
