Topaz Adizes
Topaz Adizes has traveled to over 40 countries. He is fluent in English, Hebrew, Spanish and Swedish. He has lived and worked abroad in Mexico, Sweden, Australia, and England. After studying philosophy at UC Berkeley and Oxford, Topaz traveled throughout Australia, India, Israel, and Scandinavia shooting and interviewing people he met along the way. After two years of living and working abroad he settled in New York City in October of 2001. Recently, Topaz completed a feature documentary entitled Americana. Shot around the world (Hiroshima, Ho Chi Minh, Havana, Belgrade, Istanbul, Tirana, and others), the film examines American identity by exploring the often stark contrast between Americans perception of what we stand for as a nation and how we are perceived throughout the world. Americana had its world premiere at the Pompidou Centre in Paris at the prestigious Cinéma Du Réel Festival, and went on to screen at the Morelia International Film Festival and the Margaret Mead Film and Video Festival amongst others.

Topaz has also directed and shot a number of award winning Short films. Laredo, Texas marks Topaz’s second consecutive year at the Sundance Film Festival. The short explores immigration in the largest port city in the U.S. Trece Años, shot entirely in Cuba, screened at Sundance (2009) and garnered Special Jury Mention at the Ashland Independent Film Festival. It went on to screen at over 20 festivals around the world. City (Winner Best Short Short at Aspen Shorts Film Festival 2007), deals with the changing landscape of American identity in the wake of 9/11 and premiered at the Palm Springs International Short Film Festival and toured through numerous international and domestic festivals. Topaz has directed over 20 hours of television in Mexico City for TV Azteca. He has also penned four feature scripts, Seven Miles Alone, The Spaces Between Us, My Father’s Story, and Look For The Light. In addition to directing his own projects, Topaz has had the valuable experience of learning from Steven Spielberg on the sets of Munich and War of the Worlds, Ridley Scott on the set of Kingdom Of Heaven and P.T. Anderson with There Will Be Blood.
