Noam Demsky, Ma'aleh Film School

I see myself as a journalist, filmmaker and social anthropologist. My documentaries have focused on a world many make judgments about, but few actually know. The critically acclaimed series, "The Yeshiva," followed a senior class in a religious high school as the boys reach a crossroad and must decide whether to stay religious or become secular. Earlier films about Israel include:the 12-part series, “Street Corners”;“The Pioneers of the Etzion Bloc”,about the 1947-48 struggle to build the state of Israel (using archival materials and interviews with pioneers; “Uman – The Story of a Journey”,about a spiritual quest; and “To Return Home”,about an American family’s aliyah, move to Israel.
