Keren Or Zelingher

Keren is an Israeli 2D/Stop Motion animator.

Keren earned her BFA from Bezalel Academy of Art and Design. Her graduation film, "The Deceased," was shown in 40 festivals around the world and was part of the exhibition "Twenty Four Frames per Second" at Tel Aviv's Museum of Art.

In her work, Keren focuses on small, "boring" moments and gravitates towards unhappy endings. By capturing these specific events, Keren shifts the viewers' focus to the mundanity that every person experiences and magnifies it.

With a unique point of view and personal experience, in this film, Keren explores the concept of waiting. By removing all digital objects from the soldier and placing them in an empty space, she transports them back to a period when people needed to entertain themselves to pass the time. She discovers the small moments, even if only a few seconds, where they no longer have to wait.
