Eran Riklis’ film, The Human Resources Manager, winner of 5 Israeli Academy Awards including Best Picture, is based on a novel by acclaimed Israeli writer, A. B. Yehosua. The film begins with the death of a Romanian immigrant in Israel. Although her death was not work related, an investigative reporter decides to publicize the case as an example of the cold-hearted approach of the company to its employees. The company’s human resources manager is sent to Romania to counter those accusations. On his quest to honor a woman he never met, the human resources manger discovers new qualities about himself and his job as a human resource manager.
