Daniel Carsenty wrote and directed 'After Spring Comes Fall' in 2015, a drama about a Syrian woman forced to work as an informer which celebrated its international premiere at the 39th Mostra in São Paulo and won Best Feature at the Zsigmond Vilmos Festival in Sziget, Hungary.

His second film 'The Devil's Drivers', a documentary about a Bedouin specialized in smuggling Palestinian workers, premiered at TIFF in 2021. It won the Special Jury Award at the Thessaloniki Documentary Festival, the Sunbird Award, and was nominated for the Cinema for Peace Award in Berlin.

Daniel, a graduate of the American Film Institute in Los Angeles, came to directing after working as a TV journalist in the Middle East for ARTE and BBC. His films examine the origins of violence, are reflections on inter-generational trauma and explore the possibilities of forgiveness.

Post-production finished and new documentary in the making

I am very excited to announce that the post-production of a short based on a story by Stephen Kind has been finished. And the production of a new documentary started. I'm not allowed to say about what the film is, but hopefully soon I'll be able to post more.
