Israeli Cinema: A Collective Image as a Search for Identity--Historical Introduction|
|Certificates: Jewish and Israel Studies|
The course will examine the evolution of Israeli cinema in the context of international cinema history and the Israeli culture. In the international context, Israeli cinema will be examined as part of the development of film language in the history of the medium--the nature of the interaction between the utterance of Israeli cinema and the cinematic utterance developed worldwide. In the national culture and local context, Israeli cinema will be examined as a mirror to the society development, as well as its influence on Israeli society and culture.
The instructor is an owner of an Israeli production company as well as the Center of Jewish Studies Distinguished Visiting Professor. He is a tenured faculty at the Hebrew University and served as the chair of the film track at the Sapir academic college. He has worked as a freelance, director, script writer, script editor, and producer.
