with Israeli Director Eyal Sivan

Speaker: Eyal Sivan

Location: St Antony’s College, Nissan Lecture Theatre
Time: 7:30 pm

Renowned Israeli filmmaker Eyal Sivan will present

“Izkor, Slaves of Memory” is a film based on one month

April and concludes on Independence Day right at the
end of April, in a High school. It powerfully charts
the construction of Israeli collective identity through
the education system, implicitly exploring the mechanisms
of justification, and the cultural roots, of Israel’s
racism towards the Palestinian people. Izkor won the
Prix Procirep & Mention Spéciale du Jury FIPA, 1991
and the 1991 Prix d’Investigation,Biennale Européenne
du Documentaire, Marseille.

Eyal Sivan is a distinguished Israeli director, producer,
and essayist. His films have won numerous prizes including
the Cinéma du Réel Prize at the Centre Pompidou, the Amsterdam
Golden Crown, the Mayor’s Prize at the International Documentary
Film Festival in Japan, the Grimm Gold prize in Germany and the
1st prize at the Festival des Droits de l’Homme in Paris. He is a
founder of Paris based production company Momento! and a lecturer
in Film Studies at the University of East London.
