Dorit Naaman is a film theorist and documentarist from Israel who immigrated to Canada. She earned a BFA in Film and TV (Tel-Aviv University), an MFA in filmmaking (Syracuse University), and a PhD in film theory (University of Alberta). She is currently teaching at Queen's University, Canada.
Her academic research focuses on Israeli (and to a lesser degree Palestinian) cinemas, primarily from post-colonialist and feminist perspectives. She is currently working on a book on Israeli media representation of Palestinian and Israeli women fighters. She also publishes on social issues in contemporary Israeli film and media.
Her documentary work is about identity politics and the politics of representation, and she developed a format of short videos, DiaDocuMEntaRY. The videos are embodied, personal, but not autobiographical, creating a tension between documentary and diary formats.
Dorit Naaman is an activist for a just solution to the Palestinian-Israeli impasse.
