Meet the Filmmakers: 212

Interview with director Boaz Frankel

Meet the Filmmakers: 212

Director Boaz Frankel


Describe your film 212 in three words.

Life through death.

Which film was the first to deeply impress you?

The first film to deeply impress me, I think, was RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK. Or maybe ROBIN HOOD: PRINCE OF THIEVES, which I saw in a movie theater when I was six.

Which actor or actress would you love to work with and why?

I have too many names in my mind. Just a few: Ed Harris, Julianne Moore, Jeff Bridges, Lior Ashkenazi. All of them have great charisma, and I know I could learn a lot by working with them.

If your film was an animal, what animal would it be?


 Scene from 212

What do your grandparents think you do as a job?

They all passed away, my film is inspired by their death, but they knew me well enough to know and understand that I'm a filmmaker.

What would you be if you weren’t a filmmaker?

A musician or an architect or a homeless.

Is this your first visit to Munich? What do you expect from the festival?

It's going to be my first time in Munich. I expect to be surprised.
