It sounds almost impossible but this will be a unique opportunity for an extraordinary speedy journey through the history of cinema that can be incredibly useful for all filmmakers because:
- it’s important for every film-maker or film-lover of cinema to have an impression of the journey of cinema since its birth until nowadays.
- by trying to condense such a rich history in such a short time we will distil the main themes and challenges that cinema is been facing around the world.
The two lectures – accompanied with various clips – will be given by Asher Tlalim, the Head of FilmLab.
Asher Tlalim is an Israeli Academy Award Winner (Ophir) whose films have been shown in the Berlin Film Festival, Jerusalem Film Festival, and many others. A retrospective of 20 (out of over 50) of his films was screened in Israel three years ago, among them Don’t Touch My Holocaust, Galoot, Exile in Hebrew, My Yiddishe Mama’s Dream and his award-winning trilogy All The Lonely People. Asher runs the Pears Short Film Fund at the UK Jewish Film and FilmLab. Asher was the founder, main lecturer and Head of the popular Screen Studies scheme of the Jerusalem Cinematheque ‘Kolnoa, Teritoria Nisteret‘ (cinema, hidden territory)’ for 15 years. He was the Head of the Editing Department of the IBA (Israeli BBC). He has taught at the Sam Spiegel Jerusalem Film School; Tel-Aviv University, Bezalel Academy of Art in Jerusalem and the NFTS - National Film and Television Film of the UK.
