Nida Sinnokrot

Nida Sinnokrot (1971, US) is a filmmaker and an installation artist, who lives and works in Jerusalem. His work is very reflective of his hybrid identity and personal experience. Of Palestinian origin, Sinnokrot grew up in Algeria and moved to the United States as a teenager. His films, installations, and sculptures increasingly explore the traumas generated by the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. After earning a BS in film, television, and radio from the University of Texas, Austin, and a master of fine arts in video and cinema from Bard College, New York, he then participated in the Whitney Museum Independent Studio Program.

Palestinian Blues, his first film, has won numerous awards in international film festivals. Sinnokrot’s work has been included in various international exhibitions, including Bozar in Brussels, Old City Jerusalem (Jerusalem Show), Artists Space in New York (When Artists Say We), and the Kunsthalle Exnergasse in Vienna. In 2009 Sinnokrot also participated in the 9th Sharjah Biennale.
