Dan Geva

Dan Geva is one of the most important representatives of his country's younger generation of filmmakers. In his films — most of which are made in close collaboration with his co-scriptwriter, co-director and editor Noit Geva — he challenges national myths and political symbols by linking them to personal memories and feelings from a radical, self-centered perspective and by analyzing them critically. Whether an experimental exploration of a big city's' rhythm, a subversive examination of Israel's history by reinterpreting a film by Chris Marker, or an attempt at a filmic reconstruction of the events marking a massacre, the approach taken by the two Gevas excitingly confronts highly intimate issues and puts our foregone conclusions into question.
