Biography
She was born in Jerusalem to an Italian mother and a Hungarian father. She studied Literature, Philosophy and Cinema. During the 1980s she lived in San Francisco, where she started making films and became a mother. Since returning to Israel in 1991, she has continued to write, direct and produce award-winning documentary films. Her films examine the complex relationships between women’s issues and the Palestinian- Israeli conflict, militarism, and ethnicity. She is a faculty member at Tel Aviv University’s Department of Film and Television.

Main program

Invisible / Michal Aviad

Lily is an outspoken left-wing activist, Nira a reserved television editor. Both are outwardly independent and strong women. Lily is married with two grown children, her marriage long dead. Nira is a single mother who isn’t interested in a man being a part of her life. Twenty years earlier they both experienced a trauma so severe, they had to suppress the ordeal to be able to survive. A fleeting moment unites them and the two women join forces to confront the past, realizing how this tragedy has deeply affected their lives and relationships. Now they must bridge the gap between the women they once were and the women they have become. They must either continue to push the pain in or confront the cracks in their lives. It’s time to heal and move on.
