Avi Nesher, who is one of Israel’s most celebrated directors, burst onto the Israeli movie scene at the age of 24 with The Troupe, the story of an army entertainment group which was a huge hit. He followed it up with another popular film about young people in Tel Aviv, Dizengoff 99, the following year. After the release of Rage and Glory, he attracted the attention of movie mogul Dino De Laurentiis and went to Hollywood, where he stayed for more than a decade. Since his return to Israel in 2001, he has made five extraordinary films: Turn Left at the End of the World (2004), The Secrets (2007), The Matchmaker (2010), The Wonders (2013) and Past Life (2016). Currently, he’s editing his latest film, The Other Story, which will be released in 2018.
