BIOGRAPHY OF THE DIRECTOR

Brooklyn-based filmmaker Joel Fendelman has written, produced and directed a number of award-winning short and documentary films. In 2011, he completed his first dramatic narrative feature, David. Since then, the film has been screened in Rome and Montreal World Film Festivals (which awarded the film it’s prestigious Ecumenical Prize) and at other venues around the globe. Mr. Fendelman has always been drawn to storytelling that examines the complexities of well-meaning but flawed characters trying to find equilibrium in an environment of cultural and social change. While developing his script for David, he worked with Orthodox Jewish and conservative Muslim children of Brooklyn - immersing himself in both cultures, and getting to know and understand each community. The result is a film that is human and credible; that offers no easy answers, but rather leaves viewers questioning their own attitudes and assumptions toward those who think, believe and act differently from them. Needle Through Brick, Mr. Fendelman’s feature documentary about maintaining tradition in modern times through the eyes of Kung Fu masters in Borneo captured the Silver Palm award at the Mexico International Film Festival. Other short films of his have been screened at the Cannes, Chicago, and Miami International Film Festivals.
