Born and raised in Israel Alma Har’el began her work as a photographer and a video jockey in electronic-music dance clubs. Working on live video-art per- formances with different musicians led her to directing music videos and her frequent collaborations with singer Zach Condon of the band Beirut brought her several nominations in film and music video festivals around the world. Beirut’s “Elephant Gun” was chosen as one of the best music videos of the dec- ade in 2010 by several publications and “Fjogurr Piano” for the band Sigur Ros starring Shia Labeouf is currently showing in film festivals as part of the Valtari Film Experiment. Her first feature doc “Bombay Beach” won the Tribeca film festival and was nominated for the “Indie Spirit Awards”. It was taught in several universities including Harvard’s Sensory Ethnography Lab and Film Center, as a genre redefining work.
