Elinora Schwartz, our Photography Dept.  3rd year student, and alumni of the Phototherapy Dept., participated with her film “Elinora’s Dream” (coproduced with Goda Palekaitė, Lithuania) in Vilnius Film Festival (March 21st – April 4th).

This short film portrayals 4 dreams that Elinora allegedly has and shares the point of view of the Jewish- Orthodox community of Jerusalem from a woman’s perspective- Elinora’s, a woman who belongs to this community, but in secret is an active artist. With her eyes shut she tells her own and other women's stories that are obscured by men in their ecstatic prayers.

Throughout the film, street scenes from Mea Shearim are screened on Elinora’s sleeping image.
