Israeli Society through the Cinematic Lens
Join Israeli cinematographer Yoav Kosh on campus or in venues around the state for screenings and discussions of recently released Israeli films that reflect facets of contemporary life in Israel. All screenings are free unless otherwise noted.
Yoav Kosh, the Schusterman Visiting Artist Program artist-in-residence at Colby College this semester, has been an active filmmaker and teacher in Israel for the past 25 years. His cinematography credits include about twenty five feature-length movies and dozens of television shows, drama series, and documentaries. Yoav has won numerous honors for his work, including two awards for “Best Cinematography” from the Israeli Film Academy, that country’s counterpart to the Oscars.
The goal of the Schusterman Visiting Artist Program is to engage American audiences with Israeli artists of diverse disciplines and enable them to experience in depth a vibrant and creative face of Israel. The program is a project of the Foundation for Jewish Culture and is supported by the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation. The involvement of Colby’s Jewish Studies Program has been made possible by the Bronstein Fund for Jewish Studies. Support for on-campus screenings comes from the Cultural Events Committee and the Goldfarb Center for Public Affairs and Civic Engagement. Support for off-campus screenings has been provided by Patriot Subaru in Saco and by the hosting institutions.
