She has since made numerous documen- taries which have won awards at inter- national film festivals, such as the 1992 work about the Intifada THE WOMEN NEXT DOOR, which screened in the Forum section of the Berlinale in 1992, as well as films focussing on women, children and immigrants in Israel. LO ROIM ALAICH is her first feature film.
