Alma Har’el is most famous for her award-winning films Bombay Beach and LoveTrue, Har’el creates narrative

work that plunges deep into the heart of imagination and creates surreal, dream-like poetic meditations on life.

Her wildly inventive approach to filmmaking produces genre-redefining work which is exceptional, fearless, and

artistically blurs the line between documentary and fiction. Filmmaker Magazine called her music video for Sigur

Rós ‘FJÖGER PIANO’ starring Shia LaBeouf “provocative and dramatically compelling” after naming her one of

their 25 new faces of cinema.

Her documentary Bombay Beach took top prize at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2011 and was nominated for the

“Truer than Fiction” Indie Spirit Award. The film is an unadulterated portrait of the human spirit as seen through the

lives of three protagonists in the impoverished southern California community. Stephan Holden of the New York

Times wrote, “Bombay Beach looks and feels like a fever dream about an alternate universe. Suffused with a sense

of wonder, it hovers, dancing inside its own ethereal bubble.”

Her latest film, LoveTrue, saw her collaborating with Shia LaBeouf once more, this time with him in the executive

producer’s seat. The film premiered at Tribeca Film Festival to rapturous applause in April 2016 and won the Grand

Prix best doc award at The Karlovy Vary film festival. Indiewire wrote, ‘LoveTrue confirms that Alma Har’el makes

movies like nothing else out there’. LoveTrue will premiere in 2017.
