Nina Menkes is one of the most daring, visionary directors in the world today though terribly under-produced. We are proud that Nina’s provocative Minotaur Rex will be the first recipient participating in the Eos World Fund since she represents the kind of filmmaking that combines artistic and cinematic innovation with a social conscience.
By choosing Nina Menkes as our first director both representing and launching the cause of the Fund, we set a high bar. We are announcing that we are looking for directors with innovative and startlingly inspired storytelling helmed by visionary women. We seek to bring the underrepresented female voice to audiences around the world. Nina Menkes’ seminal film which is both exclusively written and (to be) directed by Nina Menkes will be produced in Israel by Tony and Jiries Copti at Fresco Films.
