Join us for a conversation with Rob Leshem, screenwriter, author, and creator of Valley of Tears, a new HBO Max series shaking Israeli society and now reaching American audiences. Inspired by true events, Valley of Tears is a ten-part miniseries depicting the Yom Kippur War through the eyes of young combatants. It tells four emotional and highly personal stories of individuals swept away from their loved ones by the ravages of war, four parallel plotlines, intertwined together into one climactic battle.
Read a recent New York Times article praising Leshem's new TV series based on the events of the 1973 Yom Kippur War.
