“My work has two strands: the first one deals with direct political images of violence, aggression and protest, mostly in Israeli-Palestinian context. It’s critique of news media, researching the complex, both realistic and surrealistic aspects of these images. The second strand of videos is more abstract and universal, dealing with cognitive, environmental and existential issues,” says the director about his works.

The film commission for the Institute of Human Labour pointed out the importance of the right choice of one’s career for one’s happiness, thus indirectly popularizing the activities of career advice centres. A boy who wants to become a car mechanic tries out various professions in several stories, arriving at the conclusion that his ideal job is that of a ceramic painter. This focus was based on the requirements of the period employment policy whose task was to saturate the little popular and yet necessary professions.
