Join us for a live online conversation with director, screenwriter and editor Ra’anan Alexandrowicz.
In “The Viewing Booth,” in a unique encounter between filmmaker and viewer, Alexandrowicz has Maia Levy, an American college student, watch videos of life in the West Bank in his studio’s “viewing booth.” The footage is unlike any she’s seen before and contradicts some of her most deep-seated beliefs. As she watches, she verbalizes her reactions, granting the audience unique access to the internal experience of another viewer. Six months later, Maia returns to the studio to watch footage of her initial experience in the booth. Her candid, immediate reactions form a one-of-a-kind cinematic testimony to the psychology of the viewer in the digital era. Witnessing Maia’s candid and reflective analysis of her previous commentary is a staggering demonstration of the idea that seeing is not always believing.
Ra’anan Alexandrowicz’s 2011 documentary, “The Law in These Parts,” received the Grand Jury Award at the Sundance Film Festival, a Peabody Award and numerous other prizes. His earlier documentaries screened at the Berlin Film Festival’s Forum section, MoMA’s New Directors/New Films series, Cannes Directors’ Fortnight and the Toronto International Film Festival. Alexandrowicz’s films have been released theatrically in the United States and Europe and broadcast on television. He has served several times as an editing advisor for the Sundance Documentary Fund.+ More... - Less...
