    Film Theory and History, Contemporary French Film, Horror Cinema, Cinema and Emotions, Memory, Trauma,


    I received my BA in Film and Television and French Studies (2011) and my MA in French Studies (2014) from Tel Aviv University, where I also worked as a Teaching Assistant. Before arriving to the Media School, I was a Hebrew Language Teaching Assistant at Lycée La Folie Saint-James in Neuilly-Sur-Seine, France. I specialize in the intersection between contemporary French films, horror cinema and questions of memory and trauma.
