“Dan Wolman is one of my favorite Israeli artistic filmmakers. His films portray human characters, a deep level of emotion and sensitivity, combined with a particularly Israeli sense of aesthetics.”
(Amy Kronish, author of World Cinema: Israel)
With his critically acclaimed films such as Hide and Seek and My Michael, Dan Wolman is a huge influence on the Israeli film scene of today. He is part of a generation of filmmakers who, in the late sixties and early seventies, ushered in a more personal kind of Israeli Cinema. On the occasion of the Canadian premiere of his beautiful new film, An Israeli Love Story, TJFF looks back on a couple of landmark films from his career. Like his new film, the other two works being shown offer intimate stories set during the final days of the British Mandate and the early years of the State of Israel.
