Contemporary Israeli Films at MICA

When Israeli documentary filmmaker Dan Geva came to MICA as the spring 2010 Schusterman Visiting Artist Resident, he and his wife Noit were also able to curate a short film series. Yishai Orian’s The Beetle, David Ofek’s No. 17, and the Gevas’ own moving and ingenious Description of a Memory provided a fascinating look at Israeli culture and people through the eyes of their own documentarians. Memory, a cinematic response to Chris Marker’s 1960 Description d’un Combat, especially clung to the brain, a pictorial essay directly confronting Israeli identity and the decisions the country has made. Haunting and beautiful.
