Kedar produced the film Istiklal, by the director Nizar Hassan, which won the Wolgin award for best Israeli documentary at the 1994 Jerusalem Film Festival.

Kedar spoke of her film-making philosophy in a 2008 interview with Al-Jazeera: "I like conflicts, anything that has conflict, that's what I like. That's why I do wars … because that's the conflict of our lives here. I don't believe in film you can really change people but here in society we do nothing to stop the conflict, that's why I am me. I personally don't see any light at the end. It is for me that I am critical and not easy to watch and lots of people don't like it."
