I am Shira, 22 years old female filmmaker, originally from Tel-Aviv, Israel but now based in London, purchasing my MA Filmmaking degree at the London Film School. I am studying filmmaking for years now (Started in Middle School, continued in High school, and also served as a film editor in the IDF's intelligence Unit for 2 years). These days, while making more and more films at the university and developing my own filmmaking approach I am planning on telling more stories about the society in which I live in, my criticism about the communication in the age of technology, the gaps tradition and globalization, and also; the status of women in the modern society.
