“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.

In the very waters where Melville’s pequod gave chase to Moby Dick, Leviathan captures the collaborative clash of man, nature, and machine. Shot on a dozen cameras — tossed and tethered, passed from fisherman to filmmaker — it is a cosmic portrait of one of mankind’s oldest endeavors.
Directed by Lucien Castaing-Taylor and Véréna Paravel, Leviathan is an impressionist study of a fishing trawler at work off the coast of Massachusetts, and was described by the jury – headed by Iranian director Samira Makhmalbaf – as "an original and imaginative documentary which observes the brutal routine of deep-sea fishing in a way which completely immerses the watcher in its story". The Guardian
