Everyone has to get over his biography

Graduation film GRA

The film Everyone has to Get over his Biography is constructed of many layers, fragments woven into a collage, into a bigger image. Like a quilt where each piece is an entity in itself, yet when combined the different pieces create a new entity. The fragments are made using different techniques and draw from various film genres. The film investigates the subjective visual structures of which personal experiences are made.

Original text fragments from Eshkol Nevo’s short story ‘Zimmer in Givhataim’ are used in the film.

Music by Jeroen Loohuys.
