"Israel Behind the Scenes" with filmmaker Barak Heymann

Barak Heymann

In his exciting lecture "Israel Behind the Scenes: An interactive emotional political artistic journey into the heart of Israel's DNA," award-winning documentary filmmaker Barak Heymann interweaves select clips of films and television series he has created over the last twenty years, all of which touch on issues and layers that make the Israeli reality so complex - conflicted and racist and at the same time full of potential, activism and hope. 

Heymann has been directing and producing documentaries for TV and cinema for more than 20 years. Heymann Brothers Films, the independent film company led by Barak and his brother Tomer, has produced over 30 documentaries, some as international co-productions. Their films have premiered in numerous festivals worldwide, such as Berlinale, IDFA, and Hot Docs, where they have won prestigious awards. 

Sponsored by the Department of Near Eastern Studies with support from Program of Jewish Studies and Hope and Eli Hurowitz Fund.
