Raphael Nadjari is an International filmmaker, born in France. In 1995 he formed a team with which he went on to make four consecutive feature films. His team is composed of artists and producers from countries including The United States, Europe, and Israel. Raphael`s first film, The Shade, was shot in English in New York City, and was selected for the 1999 Cannes Film Festival. For his second feature, Nadjari chose to work in Super 8, with a 15 day shooting. I Am Josh Polonski’s Brother was a cross between a family movie and a film noir. The film premiered at the Forum of New Cinema at the Berlin Film Festival in 2001, and was highly acclaimed when released in France. Nadjari’s New York Trilogy came to completion with Apartment #5C, presented at Director’s Fortnight at the Cannes Film Festival in 2002. Avanim, shot in Tel-Aviv, entirely in Hebrew, marks a new step in the unusual artistic path taken by Raphael Nadjari - a director convinced that cinema is international and universal.
