The movie

Announcements paints the portraits of seven women reflecting on the same theme. Their starting point is the announcement to Hagar, Sarah and Mary as in the Old Testament, the New Testament and the Koran. Their thoughts spread out and weave a new web, drawing strands from their associations and interpretations of these texts. And by talking about their own history, their personal myths, they work up to subjects such as the birth of image in the Christian world or that of poetry in ancient Greece. Announcements is a film about the movement of thought, the power of words, the secret of the voice, and the seduction of the image. It stars Barbara Cassin, Marie Gautheron, Ruth Miriam HaCohen Pinczower, Marie José Mondzain, Haviva Pedaya, Sarah Stern and Rola Younes.


The director

Nurith Aviv, born in Tel Aviv and living in Paris, is the first woman to be director of photography in France. She shot over a hundred fiction and documentary films, with directors such as Agnès Varda, Amos Gitai, René Allio, Jacques Doillon and others. As a director, she made 10 documentary films that have been unanimously saluted by the press. Among them she directed a trilogy on language: From language to language (2004), Spoken language, sacred language (2008), Translating (2011). Over the past ten years, the screening of her films have been followed by interventions of leading intellectuals, such as Hélène Cixous, Julia Kristeva, Michel Deguy, Pierre Pachet, Jacques Roubaud, Marcel Bénabou, Sylvie Germain, and many others. In 2009, Aviv received the Edouard Glissant Prize in recognition to the importance of her work.
