Rajastan – The Land of the Kings of the Indian Thar Desert
with Yoram Porath, Film Director and Lecturer
Rajasthan is the land of the Maharajas, the famous rulers of India, their fortresses, palaces and luxurious lifestyle; the land of temples, exoticism, dreams, deserts and magical lakes.
The remains of the past are visible everywhere - the colorful palaces carved in sandstone (reputedly taken from the Arabian Nights), the holy city of Pushkar, the capital of the creator God Brahma, the proud Rajput tribes that admire freedom more than any precious stone.
"My journey on the back of a camel in the dunes of the Tar Desert revealed a traditional rural environment, a unique landscape ... and the girl with the most beautiful smile in the desert." writes Porath.
Yoram Porath began his career as a photojournalist for National Geographic (Israel). During his career Yoram won several international awards as filmmaker and photographer. His films were screened in dozens international film festivals.
Yoram’s creation emerges from the quest to explore the complexity in human nature. His work is distinguished by its concentration on human rights, political and cultural issues.
Yoram is a graduate MFA student of Hunter College, New York. Today Yoram works as lecturer in several cultural institutions and as film producer and director.
