Ella BenAmi, an Israeli / American citizen, moved to London in 2014 where she studied for an MA in Documentary Film Practice at Brunel University. Ella is a Visual Artist/Painter/Filmmaker, working from her studio in London.
I have been interviewing many people I met on my many journeys and different countries I lived in. I am interested in documenting internal, emotional, psychological processes people go through, more than following and documenting their activity.
As an Israeli who left Israel in 2000, came back for 5 years and left again,
I have strong bonds with many of the different communities living there.
In recent years I became more interested in telling stories of indigenous people of Israel - Palestinian and Bedouin, and in particular the voices of women.
I am a visual Artist working in a few mediums - Painting, Video Art, Documentary.
I am interested in the artistic aspect of film and the intersection between Art and Film.
I often look for new ways to use my frame and camera also as my paint brash.
