“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.
Events on the DAFilms portal
This is currently the Event of the week!
Until Sunday, January 22, you can watch films by renowned experimental filmmaker Guli Silberstein. Why does he deal with the theme of violence and how did he get to what he is doing? Read more in our exclusive interview! The director has also commented on his films specially for DAFilms.
Until the end of the year, you can spend the long winter evenings by watching the best and most popular documentary films presented on our portal during the year. In collaboration with their makers, we decided to offer some of them for free as a present. With love from DAF to you!
For 3.99 euro, you can get a selection of 8 documentaries that entered Czech cinematic distribution in 2016 as well as access to another 1500 films from around the world. Dear friends, please, do not forget that you can give an ideal present not only to your intellectual friends but also to yourselves.
Join us on a trip to the most remote holiday destination so far; the centre of Western Africa; during the last week of August. Looking through the camera of director Sylvain L’Espérance, we will offer you a unique encounter with the life stories of people that might seem distant at first glance; which, however, are closer to us than we would have thought. They have a common denominator that links us all; the unintended impact of globalization. In collaboration with Canada’s RIDM festival, DAFilms.com invites you to open three African film chapters in the week from August 29 to September 11 for free.
