  • Alma Har'el is an Israeli-American music video and film director, best known for her documentary Bombay Beach, which took the top prize at Tribeca Film Festival in 2011, received a nomination for a 2011 Independent Spirit "Truer than Fiction" award, and has been taught in several universities, including Harvard’s Sensory Ethnography Lab and Film Center, as a genre redefining work. Har’el is famous for her ability to artistically blur the lines between documentary and fiction, effectively utilizing choreographed dance sequences and inspired musical choices in a surreal, dream-like poetic meditation on life. Stephan Holden of The New York Times wrote about Har'el's film Bombay Beach: “[it] looks and feels like a fever dream about an alternate universe. Suffused with a sense of wonder, it hovers, dancing inside its own ethereal bubble”. In 2016 she premiered her newest film "LoveTrue" at the Tribeca Film Festival. The film went on to win the Grand Prix Best Documentary Award at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival. She was recently named among the "Top 12 female filmmakers ready to direct a blockbuster" by Indiewire. Flavorwire has called Har'el an "honest to goodness visionary," While No Film School adds, ""Every once in a while, an artist comes along who changes the way we think about film. Alma Har'el is one of those." (en)
