Danny Boyle was born in Lancashire, United Kingdom in 1956. He started his career in theatre, but moved on to television drama at BBC Northern Ireland. From his feature debut 'Shallow Grave' (1994), he has established himself as one of the liveliest and most unpredictable of British directors, adept at shifting genres and bringing a personal quality to whatever he tackles.
Born in New York but moving to Tel Aviv aged one, Rama Burshtein joined Orthodox Judaism at 25 and has since forged a fascinating career as a filmmaker studying the mechanics and relations within this community. Originally part of a collective of Orthodox Jewish women filmmakers who funded, produced, directed and wrote films for themselves, Burshtein spent 15 years working on her first feature 'Fill the Void' (2012). Like her subsequent feature 'Through the Wall', 'Fill the Void' unfolds around a wedding. But that's where any similarity between the films end. Her debut is a serious drama that plays out as an existential inquiry into the nature of human relationships. 'Through the Wall', by marked contrast, is a comedy that details the doubts and dramas that surround the lead-up to a wedding.
