Who is Solo Avital?
Avital filed his first patent when he was 19 years old while studying music at MUSIC | NYU in New York City. Although he had some success with his invention he continued to focus on music studies and also started with computer graphics, namely 3D animation.
In 2001 Avital returned to Israel to direct a short documentary film Keep on Dancing, portraying the psychic of young Israeli club goers trying to live a western lifestyle under the shadow of terror attacks. In 2003 Avital completed his second documentary named Art Liberates for Israel documentary channel 8.
Avital's 2006 film ...More Than 1000 Words portrays 2 years in the life of Israel's war photographer Ziv Koren, his daughter Shira and his model/actress wife Galit Gutman who was pregnant during the filming. The film received numerous international awards and also made history. It's the first Israeli film ever to be invited to be screened in Iran at the Teheran Fajr International Film Festival. The invitation sparked a controversial debate in the media across Iran's, Israel's and Europe, after the Iranian government banned the festival. The film producer Oliver Berben told Variety Magazine "It's really too bad, screening the film would have been a chance to bring people together. Art and movies should be above politics, but in this case they're apparently not."
