Around Independent Lens

The Filmmaker

Headshot of Yael Klopmann

From Director Yael Klopmann:

We want to show the democratic decisions and the difficulties and to show that even with such social turmoil, the whole operation was carried out with no violence, with love, tolerance, sensitivity and with a common conclusion: When this ends we are still one nation. The story also reflects how much the state of Israel is willing to sacrifice for the peace process.

Her three favorite films:
Gone With the Wind
The Witness

Her advice for aspiring filmmakers: Follow your dream.

Her most inspirational food for making independent film:
The will to make art, create and not give in despite the difficulties—and finding subjects who will present to others new knowledge and change points of view.
