Roy Krispel

Roy Krispel was born in 1979 in Israel. He made a few feature-length documentary films. ABU OMAR is his first feature fiction film.

I wanted to put this story into images with gravity and tenderness, so that it could touch the heart of the person. The humanity of each character brings the viewer, regardless of his or her political convictions and religion, his nationality, to connect to the human tragedy taking place every day in Israel.

Filmography: Broken Hearts Club (2016), Football in the Valley (2014), Kumasi — Haifa (2012)
