Edri at Mea She’arim, frames from video, 13:23 min. 2019-2021.

Edri at Mea She'arim

"Edri at Mea She’arim" is a video work in parts, taken one by one as a diary, 2019-2021, and more yet to come.

 

Four scenes from "Breakfast at Tiffany's" were taking apart and re-filmed in Mea Shearim, Jerusalem.
While sticking to the same storyboard, the work examines the new narrative, following mechanisms of the local-female-Orthodox film industry,  and deals with questions of glamor and value, gender, and forgery, gender, attribution and belonging within political and socio-cultural systems.

 

-----
The screening of "Breakfast at Tiffany’s" on Mea She’arim, which is also a screening of Mea She’arim on "Breakfast at Tiffany’s", not only creates a doubtful-ironic tension between the glamorous world of New York and the solemn Orthodox- society but also maps and identifies, by a way of representation, the typical tensions common to the communal and the cultural - as an arena of stylized practices and ceremonial dressing game, where the characters are actresses in a play, whose role is dictated from the outside and written by them simultaneously, operate in the twilight zone between the active and the passive, the social world and its constituent individuals. 

(Amos Noy, 2021)

The video received an excellence award of the Fine Arts department, Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design 2019, The America-Israel Cultural Foundation Scholarship of Excellence, featured at Edmond de Rothschild Center Tel Aviv 2019, The TISFF- The International Students Film Festival 2020, and on Jerusalem Artists' House, supported by Mifa'al Hapais.
