ABOUT THE FILM
Koudelka: Shooting Holy Land is a unique and intimate look into the creative process of Josef Koudelka, one of photography’s greatest living masters. Filmmaker Gilad Baram follows Koudelka on his photographic journey through Israel and Palestine as he searches for the elusive moment in which a photograph emerges.
Czech Photographer Josef Koudelka grew up behind the Iron Curtain and always wanted to know “what was on the other side”. Forty years after capturing the iconic images of the Soviet invasion of Prague in 1968, the legendary Magnum photographer arrives in Israel and Palestine. On first seeing the nine-meter-high wall built by Israel in the West Bank, Koudelka is deeply shaken and embarks on a four-year project in the region which will confront him once again with the harsh reality of violence and conflict.
