Keren Cytter (b. 1977, Israel) is a filmmaker based in Europe. The central element in her work is the long monologue or narration — a literary device that spins her tales in a philosophical and sometimes surreal fashion. Meanwhile, visually, her use of the handicam lends a rough documentary feel, and the viewer becomes aware of a disconnect between narrative and image. Cytter is also an accomplished author, and has written novels, poetry, and an opera libretto.

The subject matter of her work is the stuff of relationships – loss, loving, longing, friendship, betrayal – much of it culled from her own or her friends’ lives. While the language may be bookish, the topics are pure soap opera, and the disjunction between the words and images adds to the melodramatic flavour.  

In the biennial Keren Cytter’s is showing the work My Greatest Hits, a collection of highlights from four of her videos:
