Yair Agmon was born in Jerusalem in 1987 and still lives there today. Raised in an Orthodox Jewish environment, he graduated from a yeshiva (school for Jewish studies). Studied cinema at the Sam Spiegel Film and Television School, where he teaches today. Short films he directed have been screened in festivals around the world, including: Tribeca Film Festival, Munich,
Moscow, Beijing, San Francisco and Jerusalem.
Yair will be in Milwaukee with his partner Elad Schwartz to present their latest web series ‘The Hitchhikers’ from which they will show several episodes that break the stigmas and display the diversity of Israeli society. They will be talking about their experience while crisscrossing the country offering a lift to everyone they meet. They talk about how this experience changed their perspective on Israeli society, and how this program became a platform that gave visibility and a voice to people on the margins of the society.
