'I WISH YOU WOULD DIE'Israel, 2012.
A documentary film depicting the relationship between Michal Shapira and the late Ori Slonim. Slonim died of cancer in October 2011, 4 days after his 31st birthday. Nevertheless, "I Wish You Would Die", in which Ori and Michal record themselves during the last five months of his life, is a film inspired by love and courage.
Michal had recently ended a complex relationship with a man 20 years older than she. Ori was a charming and successful copywriter who discovered that he had a rare and difficult cancer. She was looking for love. He was looking for a reason to live.
"I Wish You Would Die" was filmed between preparations for Ori and Michal’s music show and treatments at hospitals. The title of the film is taken from a song which Ori and Michal performed shortly before his death – lyrics by Meir Goldberg and melody by the late Ori Slonim.
