AFAC Documentary Program - 2017
Raed Andoni is a Palestinian director and producer, active since 1997 as the co-founder of two production companies: DAR FILMS in Palestine, and LES FILMS DE ZAYNA in Paris. His first documentary as a director, IMPROVISATION (2005), follows the Palestinian Joubran family as they create the musical OUD. For his first feature-length film, FIX ME (2009) Andoni filmed twenty of his psychotherapy sessions in Ramallah, Palestine. Featuring a Woody Allen-esque array of characters, including members of his own family, FIX ME explores the need for finding individuality in a place so dominated by politics and collective identity. His latest documentary GHOST HUNTING was awarded with Glashuette Original Documentary Award during the Award Ceremony of the 67th Berlinale film festival.
