Childhood photos from Nurith Aviv’s family album evoke memories and reflections which lead her to encounters with researches in neuroscience.
In her film Poetics of the Brain she weaves associative links between her personal biographical stories and the scientists’ accounts of their work. They discuss topics partly related to her previous films: memory, bilingualism, reading, mirror-neurons, smell, traces of experience.
