Tomorrow's Gone

Israel / 2019 / documentary / 70' / DocFilmMusic Competition

The figure of Charlie Megira has been shrouded in mystery until today. We know that his real name was Gabi Abudraham and that he was a colourful bird of Israeli underground who looked like a character from the early films by Jim Jarmusch. Moreover, he collaborated with Ari Folman on "The Congress". The filmmaker, who was friends with the genius guitarist, spent two decades documenting his career – from garage performances to shows in the US. What demons were hiding behind Charlie’s stage mask? Why did he decide to give his last, the most desperate, performance?
