Recommended: Ishu Patel

The animator and independent filmmaker, Ishu Patel, is coming to Israel this month.

Ishu Patel was born in India and is a key figure of the National Film Board of Canada.

His animations and films combine great music and delicate and poetic images. Patel is concerned with philosophical issues and his work succeeds in transporting us to other worlds.
