Join us for an in-depth conversation on filmmaking with Susan Korda, whose new film Salomea's Nose is included in the Festival. The Master Class begins with a screening of her short film followed by conversation with Aviva Weintraub, Director, New York Jewish Film Festival.
Korda studied filmmaking at CCNY and has worked as an editor for 20 years. With David Leitner, she directed and produced the 1989 award-winning documentary Vienna Is Different. She produced another award-winning documentary in 2000, One of Us, and recently completed her short narrative film Salomea’s Nose. Her editing credits include the 1989 Oscar®-nominated documentary For All Mankind and Sandi DuBowski’s groundbreaking Trembling Before G-d (2001). She was a producer on Emily and Sarah Kunstler’s William Kunstler: Disturbing the Universe, and story consultant on Alan Berliner’s The Sweetest Sound and First Cousin Once Removed. Korda teaches at Columbia University and conducts editing and storytelling workshops in the U.S., Europe, Israel, and South Africa. She is currently working on her “Jerusalem Project,” in which she is finding the similarities and differences in the dreams, fairy tales, superstitions, cooking recipes, and jokes among Jerusalemite Christians, Muslims, and Jews.
