Join us for a special Q & A with Barak Heymann, the director of 'Comrade Dov', 'In Your Eyes' and 'Bridge Over the Wadi'.
Barak Heymann was born in 1976 in Yedidia Village in the north of Israel. He has been directing and producing documentaries for TV and cinema for more than a decade.
Barak’s, and his brother Tomer's, independent film company, Heymann Brothers Films, has produced over 20 documentaries, and some as international co-productions. Their films have premiered in numerous festivals worldwide, such as Berlinale, IDFA and Hotdocs, where they have won prestigious awards. Barak teaches in several films schools in Israel and is currently engaged in a number of ongoing projects.
'Comrade Dov' is a thought-provoking portrait of a unique and compelling politician, former Israeli MK Dov Khenin, who refuses to give up, even as reality deals him one cruel blow after another.
