Lia Tarachansky is a Jaffa-based filmmaker and the Israel/Palestine correspondent for The Real News Network (TRNN) where she produces short, documentary-style reports exploring the context behind the news.
In 2013 Tarachansky completed work on an independent feature documentary, ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD, a Naretiv Productions film. The film is an exploration of the power of denial. It questions what Israelis learn, know, and sometimes choose not to know about the 1948 war. That fateful year led to the birth of the state of Israel and displacement of two-thirds of the Palestinian people. The film is currently screening in theaters and festivals in Israel/Palestine and around the world.
Tarachansky's work is frequently featured in publications such as +972 Magazine, Mondoweiss, USA Today, Al Jazeera, and the Huffington Post.
