Vivian OSTROVSKY


Nationality: American

Born in NY (USA).
Attended high school in Rio de Janeiro before studying Psychology and Cinema at the Sorbonne University in Paris.
Her activities began with her involvement in women’s cinema for which she organized international film festivals and subsequently founded Cine-Femmes International, through which she distributed films by women around Europe. She ceased this activity in 1980 when she began making her own films, but continued being active as
film curator and programmer for international film festivals such as Jerusalem.
Her films explore the theme of transit and can be described, according to Yann BEAUVAIS between ‘film journal ‘ and ‘film collages’.
