Filmmaker David Perlov was born in Rio de Janeiro in 1930 and passed away in Tel Aviv in 2003. In 1957, he made his first short film, Old Aunt China, an animation based on sarcastic drawings and texts made by a fourteen-year-old girl who lived in Lyon at the end of the nineteenth century. Perlov had found them in the attic of a house in Paris where he lived at the time. In 1958, Perlov immigrated to Israel to settle in the Kibbutz Bror Hayil.
