Yaron Zilberman is currently in postproduction on an eight-episode drama series, Valley of Tears, about the 1973 Yom Kippur War. His film Incitement, playing at this year’s NYJFF, about the assassination of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, won the Israeli Academy Award, the Ophir Prize, for Best Picture of 2019 and premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival. Yaron also directed, co-wrote, and produced the internationally acclaimed A Late Quartet, about a world-renowned New York string quartet as its members struggle to stay together on the eve of their 25th anniversary, starring Academy Award–winners Philip Seymour Hoffman and Christopher Walken. Yaron’s first film, the feature-length documentary Watermarks, was co-produced with HBO and ARTE. It tells the story of the champion women swimmers of the esteemed Jewish sports club Hakoah Vienna, as they reunite in their eighties to swim together one more time in the city they were forced to escape from 65 years earlier. Join Yaron Zilberman for a master class on screenwriting and directing.
