Denison’s Hillel welcomes Israeli filmmaker Eran Barak for an artist’s talk to discuss his approach to making documentaries.
A film director, photographer, cinematographer and visual artist, Barak’s work examines the contexts and relationships between the photographed image, time and memory, while deconstructing the accepted discrepancies between dramatic and documentary film. His films “Bloomfield or Childhood Memory,” “Hunting Time,” and “My Beloved Uncles” have been programmed by film festivals and museums worldwide, including Toronto, Sao Paolo, Karlovy Vary, Anthology Film Archive NY, and the Haifa Museum for Modern Art. He graduated from the NB Haifa School of Design Academy with honors and earned his master’s of fine arts from Tel Aviv University’s Film and Television department.
Also on Friday, Barak will join Hillel for a special Shabbat dinner at 6 p.m. in Knobel Hall in the Burton D. Morgan Center. This event is open to the public, but it is by RSVP only. After dinner, Barak will show his film, “My Beloved Uncles” at 8 p.m. in Slayter Auditorium.
