THE DIVINE WAY
Loosely based on Dante’s Divine Comedy, The Divine Way takes the viewer into the protagonist’s epic descent through an endless labyrinth of staircases. As the woman journey deeper, the staircases transform and she is trapped and pulled into their dangerous landscape.

MEN BEHIND THE WALL
The Men Behind the Wall offers a unique look at the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through the swipes of a dating app Tinder, as an Israeli woman is being suggested meetings with (Palestinian) men who live on the other side of the barrier. Where do boundaries begin and where do they end? Ines Moldavsky personally sets out to discover the answer to the question, and then to overstep these limits. An experimental approach to both current social issues and intimate human interactions, the film emphasises the absurdity of power and segregation, and, further, that of stereotypes and gender roles in the digital age.
