b.h. Yael is an acclaimed Toronto based filmmaker, video and installation artist whose singular work combines non-linear and hybrid forms, merging the autobiographical with documentary perspectives. Yael’s work has dealt with issues of identity, authority and family structures, while at the same time addressing the fragmentary nature of memory and belonging, and religious and secular narratives of apocalypse.
In Cinema Politica’s exclusive collection, Yael delves into generational memories and collective amnesia surrounding the Israeli colonization of Palestine. Through an intimate and artistic lens, Yael also turns her lens inward, interpreting the complex layers of Arab-Jewish identity and its cultural expressions, as well as the political intersections of family and protest in Québec.
