Based in Israel, the United States and France, filmmaker Amos Gitai has produced an extraordinary, wide-ranging, and deeply personal body of work. In a repertoire of around 40 films which includes such notable titles as KIPPUR, KADOSH, FREE ZONE (starring Natalie Portman) and DISENGAGEMENT (starring Juliette Binoche), Gitai has explored the layers of history in the Middle East and beyond, including his own personal history, through such themes as homeland and exile, religion, social control and utopia.
