Ran Slavin is a filmmaker, video artist & experimental musician. His unconventional approach to filmmaking stems from visual art, specifically video installations that often highlight threshold situations of perception, virtuality in reality, tensions between myth, history and imagination. A unique voice in the director-driven Israeli independent cinema, his films, sound work and video installations often utilize layered atmospheres, detailed sound & post production processes.
