I was born in Sderot, a small town near the Gaza Strip. Cinema wasn’t something I knew about until the age of 10 I remember the first time I entered a movie theater. The feeling of quiet and darkness made me feel like I was in a different world, and inside, even violence and pain can be beautiful. I served in the army as a medic and used to watch a lot of films during my service. I was exposed to films which did not only serve to amuse, but also to think. I fell in love with films and wanted to be a part of it any way possible.
