“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.
DOC ALLIANCE SELECTION // 2009
DOC ALLIANCE SELECTION represents five high-quality films, one selected by each of the Doc Alliance festival partners. The films tour at the five Festivals starting at VISIONS DU REEL Nyon. At the end of the year an international jury decides about the “Doc Alliance Award”. In 2009 the Award was handed over during the DOK Leipzig. The five national markets support the films at their festivals and in their theatrical, TV and DVD distribution.
A surreal report from the peripheries of 'the people's home'. Maggie, a Kenyan woman who loves gold jewellery and suffers from severe pigeon phobia, lives in a Malmö suburb. A journey into a wild, life-affirming and mentally disordered world.
The film won Doc Alliance Award 2009.
