Natalie Portman, the movie star and debuting director, has acknowledged Polish cinematographer Sławomir Idziak for his “commitment and professional working methods”. Idziak is director of photography on “A Tale of Love and Darkness”, which is an adaptation of the novel of the same name and also 32-year-old Portman’s silver screen directorial debut. The American actress, who was born in Jerusalem and is the daughter of an Israeli doctor and American artist, also plays one of the leading roles in the movie. The novel “A Tale of Love and Darkness”, written by Amos Oz, an Israeli writer born in 1939, has been translated into 30 or so languages. Sławomir Idziak spent the last four months in Israel working on the screen adaptation. Shooting was completed several days ago. The Polish cinematographer uses an unconventional way of working on set, which was created during his workshops for young filmmakers. Film Spring Open has been run by Idziak for a few years now and his unconventional methods drew the attention of the young director. “The choices we made together at the pre-production stage saved so much time and effort,” wrote Portman in a special thank-you expressing her gratitude to Idziak.
