Keren Hantman sees the filmmaker as a social leader, one who has the ability not only to give viewers a conceptual experience but also to open them to a different view of themselves and their society.
The need to listen, watch, tell, and create stories has been an inseparable part of Keren Hantman’s life since she can remember herself. Keren has been working in film, television, and theater productions for the past 15 years.
After the birth of her first son, Noah, Keren discovered the advantages and disadvantages of being a filmmaker and a mother. The inspiring yet overwhelming role of being a mother, combined with the tension of work on film sets in a predominantly male environment, helped drive her to write and direct films about the female experience, with the mission to help other women create as well.
