Dina Zvi-Riklis is a director and screenwriter. Riklis took her first steps in filmmaking as Script Supervisor in a range of films, including Halfon Hill Doesn’t Answer (1976), Aunt Clara (‘doda Clara’) (1977), and Under the Nose (‘mitahat la’af’) (1982). In 1990, she directed Look Out (1990), which won the Best Short award at the Jerusalem Film Festival. Highlights of her other films include Dreams of Innocence (1993), two-time Ophir award-winner, Three Mothers (2006) which also took home two awards at the Jerusalem Film Festival, The Fifth Heaven (2011) that was showcased in festivals worldwide, and The Ambassador’s Wife (2016, 40min), which earned a Special Mention at the Haifa International Film Festival. Zvi-Riklis wrote and directed T’Kuma (‘revival’, 1998), the sequel to critically-acclaimed TV series, Pillar of Fire. The programme was produced ahead of Israel’s jubilee and chronicled the country’s first fifty years. The series sent ripples through the public that went as far as parliament (the Knesset), after certain right-winged voices argued that the episodes which dealt with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict gave far greater emphasis to the Palestinian narrative. She is married to director, Eran Riklis.
