AR-Amos-Gitai

 

Ana Arabia film screening followed by conversation with filmmaker Amos Gitai and Q&A with the audience.

Based in Israel and France, Amos Gitai has produced an extraordinary, wide-ranging, and deeply personal body of work. In around 40 films – documentary and fiction-, and books, Gitai has explored the layers of history in the Middle East and beyond, including his family history, through such themes as homeland and exile, religion, space, urban communities, social control and utopia. His trademark style includes long takes with scarce but significant camera movements. Ana Arabia was filmed in one sequence-shot of 85 minutes.
