Benny Brunner

Benny Brunner's picture

(b. 1954, Israeli-Dutch) has written, directed, and produced documentary films internationally since the late 1980s. Brunner sides with the dispossessed, unrepresented, and the ‘other’. The Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Jewish and modern Israeli history, and inspiring individuals are the subject matters of his films. His work is subversive in nature and has proven to be a thorn in the collective Israeli establishment’s backside.
