Exchange project with Beit Berl College in Israel

Students shoot documentary films in fourth semester in BA Film

A joint documentary film project on the topic »It's complicated - relationships in a changing world« is being realized by the ifs with the Israeli Beit Berl College - as part of the fourth semester projects in BA Film. Five documentary films are being made in mixed teams, three in Israel, two in Germany. Five ifs students traveled to Israel in May for ten days of filming, followed by four students from Israel who came to Cologne. The development of the material for the cooperation project has been underway since January under the direction of Prof. Hajo Schomerus (ifs) and Prof. Uri Bar-On (BBC). The exchange is made possible by an Erasmus grant.

Filming »PARA PARA« (AT) in Israel

ifs-students Alessandra Albano and Muriel Wolf shot their documentary project »PARA PARA« (AT) in a small town on the edge of the desert. They portrayed a young woman who is at a crossroads after two years of military service: Life is starting, what do I want? Where do I want to go? Everything seems possible and at the same time nothing is certain. Between family, friendship and new hopes, the film deals with traumas of the past, which also affect the present. The film was shot at the protagonist's family and her former second home in an agricultural kibbutz in northern Israel.
