Jellyfish (above) and Sangre de mi Sangre (below)
2008 has been a great at the Wexner Center with number of great filmmakers visiting to introduce and discuss their work including Bonni Cohen with Rape of Europa in January, Spike Lee receiving the Wexner Prize in February, Tom Kalin introducing Savage Grace in March, and Milos Forman introducing Taking Off in April to name just three.
We are bringing in two young and already accomplished filmmakers this month with Israeli writer/director Etgar Keret and Christopher Zalla. Keret will be here on Tuesday, May 6 to introduce his film Jellyfish which captured the Camera d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival. Keret is primarily known as one of the great young authors in Israel and he will do a reading at the Wex at 5pm before the screening of Jellyfish.
We're excited to be presenting the area premieres of both of these award-winning films. Don't miss this opportunity to hear two up-and-coming filmmakers discuss their work. -- Dave Filipi, Wexner Center Film/Video Curator
