Avi Mograbi

Born in 1956 in Tel Aviv (Israel)

Studies philosophy at the University of Tel Aviv and at the Ramat Hasharon Art School.

Selected filmography: How I Learnt to Overcome my Fear and Love Arik Sharon (1996), Happy Birthday, Mr Mograbi (1998), August: a Moment before the Eruption (2001), Avenge but One of My Two Eyes (2005).

Avi Mograbi will partially post-produce his new film, 32Z (2007) at the Fresnoy. 32Z concerns the unbridgeable gulf between the disturbing testimony of a soldier from an Israeli army crack unit and the artistic representation of this same testimony, the theme being the void between a pitiless reality and its transmission in the form of a work of art.
